  • For a small fee, you can enter a well maintained park at the furthest southwest point in Africa. It is a great place to go hiking, see the local fauna and wildlife, as well as travel a stretch of...

  • Highly recommend to visit it if you’re in Cape Town. Firstly, the symbolic of the place is incredible. You really do feel like you are at the end of the world. It is a unique feeling. Secondly, you will love the landscape and the big cliffs. The views are really breathtaking and are a great spot for photography lovers. The facilities are good too.
  • Good place, relaxing a good way to see land and sea meet. The place looks better at sunset time and has rocks on the site. The beach is mostly rocky and clean, however the rocks are slippery because of algae. The place also has a small complex with shops, food, coffee and souvenirs, the place is one of the most famous in south africa, it has cultural significance and a deep history. Although, there are many more places in South Africa, you can avoid this place or choose it for the last as there are more interesting places in the country. There are many animal parks, natural animal habitats, etc that can be seen in Africa. Good for a single visit,, but is relaxing and isn't very crowded like other similar places in SA. Good place if you want a few good natural pics in front of natural landscapes.
