Quick stop to take in the scenery, marvel at the beauty of the Cape, snap a pic and then continue the drive to Cape of Good Hope.

This is a distinctive spot seen from many places, putting Kommetjie on the map. I don't think that there are any tours, but it's location makes it great to be admired from Chapman's Peak Drive, from Long Beach, as well as from the scenic road...More

Well worth a visit to walk to or from the Kommetjie village where there is a choice of restaurants. A well maintained boardwalk makes the walk from the little Kom to the lighthouse and back an absolute pleasure. Always a popular place for surfers on...More

We came to Slangkop Point Lighthouse when driving along the stunning western coastline. You can't really miss the lighthouse which is interesting and beautiful in itself.

I think what I love about this lighthouse is the access to it. The boardwalk (Die Kom) is a lovely walk along the shoreline. There are benches along the way where you can sit and enjoy the Atlantic ocean's crashing waves, and the surfers braving...More

If you are interested in lighthouses Slangkop is close to Cape Town and the views are stunning. On one side you overlook Hout Bay and Chapmans Peak Drive and on the other side is nothing until you get to South America. Well worth a visit.
