Been here a couple of times and always make the trip to the top of the lighthouse, then take a drive past the actual cape on a rocky beach - always fun to collect shells there. Peaceful little town, Struisbaai harbour is very close, worth the visit.

“Visit the southern most tip of Africa!!”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Beautiful beaches, a great walk alongside the sea, fantastic views from the top of the Lighthouse - well worth the climb to the top! Before leaving the area stop off at the harbour in Struisbaai - you could be lucky and catch sight of the stingrays who come up close to the edge of the water. Have a meal at the Pelican and watch the fishing boats land their daily catch!! An area of un-spoilt natural beauty that still remains!

“Ok if you're in the area”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

We had time to kill so made the trip but it wasn't all that exciting. At least I can say that I've been to the southernmost point in Africa!

Unless it's on your bucket list, I'd probably give it a pass as there are more beautiful things to see in South Africa.

“Great attraction”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

I took a friend of mine for a whistle tour of Cape Town, Hermanus and Agulhas and this was one of the experiences we really enjoyed. Short walk (or drive) to the most Southern tip of Africa and the sound of the oceans meeting was truly inspiring. Stop at the lighthouse and chat to the friendly Tourist guide in the little shop, she is really knowledgeable about the area and history! A definite yes for a visit. Visit the little shop, Suidpunt Potpourri - super buys in the shop!

“Special place”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

I didnt really know what to expect when we set of to the most Southern point of Africa. The trip started of well when we drove into Struisbaai. The area had a tropical Island feel with beautiful white beaches and turquoise waters. From there Cape Agulhas is just a few kilometres down the road. A short drive down a sand road to a small parking spot and an easy 150 m walk on a decked path brings you to the sign that marks the spot. There is definitely a special feeling to be there. If you are anywhere close to this area, make an effort and you will definitely be rewarded with a great experience.
