“Great reserve but poor choice of restaurant, go to Simon's Town instead”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013

Ordinary food with extraordinary prices, bad service and altogether a bad deal all round. Rather just focus on the great foot paths which shall take you down the sharp cliff faces to the rocks flanking the sea below. There are more types of flower in this small finger tip of a peninsula nature reserve than the entire United Kingdom, so that is what the focus is. Walk thru the trails and enjoy the great cornucopia of flora which is comprised of Cape Fynbos.

“Breathtaking scenery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

While visiting Simon's Town, I got the chance to drive out to Cape Point. This national park is well maintained and has ample opportunities for the avid shutterbug. The lighthouse and funicular ride up to the top is a must see. The Two Oceans restaurant will get it's own review here.

“Cape Point”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

I recommend spending a morning going to Cape Point and Cape of Good Hope. Both are relaxing and offer great views and photo moments.

“Not the highlight of South Africa”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

Being in cape point is nice due to the idea that the two oceans meet, other than that, there was not really somehting very special about it.
