“Beautiful vistas and facilities.”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

Though the weather was terrible, we still enjoyed a wonderful afternoon at Cape Point. We started out with a wonderful fresh lobster lunch at the restaurant up top and then took the Funicular (a car on a track) up to walk up to the lighthouse. The views were stunning all around! The Funicular at times is not that reliable so it was not that big of a surprise we had to walk down as the electricity went out for a bit. . .but that was fun as well! Whether you take the extra time to walk out to the very point or not, this is a good use of your time!

“Picture perfect”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

The postcards draw your interest to a visit where the two oceans meet at this magnificent area. It really is a sight to behold. Should you feel energetic, take a walk along the pathways or just stay at the lookout area at the top.

A restaurant is available to recharge after the walk.

A must-see venture.

“Gorgeous!”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

Gorgeous stop on our South Africa/Cape Town trip. Hiked up to the Lighthouse; the views were well worth it, and you could see "the two oceans" come together.

“Be Prepared to Walk”
Reviewed May 17, 2014

First of all expensive to get in and ensure its not a holliday day as it gets very busy and crowded, be fit and not with people that cannot walk long distances and especially top of cape point, restaurants busy and expensive and long time waiting mostly
all in all not crazy at this place at all and vey much a tourist attraction with money to spend but not for locals with the poor rand . a once off type place for locals
