The best time to see the city from Signal Hill is when the sun is setting. Watch as the city lights up for the evening. It is utter magic and it is free. Great way to experience Cape Town.

Signal Hill is free to visit and acts as a very special viewing platform to the entire city and surrounding areas. We walked up from Sea Point which was a beautiful walk. Don't miss out!

We drove up around 8:00 pm and located the best viewpoint. The views are amazing. It happened to be full moon which further added to the beauty of the view. You will be able to figure out necklace of the lights.
