This is probably one of the most beautiful spots along the coast. The wildlife and plant life are both interesting and exciting to see. You never know what u will see Great photo ops along the coast Be sure to visit this area

I came there now for the 5th time and will do it again and again. Directly at the sea you can do a lot of pictures or just walk around. The parking place is right in front of the Cape. You should inform about the history before.

The Cape of Good Hope is a part of the Cape Point Nature Reserve. It is a rocky area along the South African coast where waves repeatedly crash along the coast. Hardy souls can choose to hike down to get a closer look at nature in action, but note that the walk back up to the Cape Point Nature Reserve... More

It was a windy & foggy day when we made our way to Cape Point. But it was lovely. Definitely worth a visit, and the trek to the Lighthouse. It can get very windy, so dress for wind, I was wearing a rather short dress, and I was constantly worried about it, which took a way from the overall experience... More

As South Africans we have to look at our country in awe. Cape Town, has the best of both worlds. Cape Point, is such a beautiful place. The scenic walk, is so worth it. No wheel chair access. Not suitable for elderly, or too young though. Watch out for the baboons.

The Cape of Good Hope can be reached from Cape Point through a marked track that takes about 1.5 hours to return. The trek takes you to the very top of the Cape of Good Hope, instead of the signboard at the car park below. It's very windy at the top!

Nearly got blown off our feet. Extremely windy but well worth the trip. Managed to get photos taken at the sign before several coaches appeared and crowded the place. On the way out of the park the traffic jam went on for ages. Get there early, and take a warm jacket.

What a wonderful place ! We climbed to the top peak, it was fun ! The views are worth the climb, the baboons were just chased off ! But we did see a few on our way out.

I actually thought it was the southern point of Africa, but Cape Algulhas is actually that and way more spectacular. I was sort of dissapointed. The drive through the park is pretty, but as we did not wish to climb a rock, we just drove to the sign took a couple of pictures (also of the cargus of a dead... More
