This is the second time we have visited Cape Point. Our advice is to rent a car and drive, stopping at Boulders Beach. It is a wonderful day of seeing many things and it gets you back to your hotel for dinner. At Cape Point...More

That´s the place from where the portuguese people reach Asia (India and China). This very important for Human History and, mainly, for Brazilian, African and Portuguese History. Besides that, the nature is very beautiful there ! A wonderful place to be and see!

Stunning views. Crazy aggressive baboons. Do not carry food and paper bags with you in trek to the top. There is a funicular that does take you part way up but after that is 126 steps. So worth it for the view!

Quite a drive to reach the point from downtown, but beautiful and worth every kilometer. We took the toll road along the ocean which was a bit of a scary drive, but the views were spectacular.

Great views, windy and preserved area. Can be a. It crowdy at times but site is big enough to provide quietness. We have met wild animals (antilope and ostrich).

Hi sorry for the delay, there is transport almost to the top so I would say yes for the views but you wouldn’t be able to get right up to the lighthouse as that’s very narrow, steep and with steps. Hope this helps
