At the tip of the Cape Peninsula, 60km SouthWest of Cape Town, lies Cape Point. Located within the southern section of Table Mountain National Park; a declared World Heritage site, as part of the Cape Floral region. The Park encompasses 7750Ha of rich and varied Fauna and Flora. Cape Point is a nature entusiast's paradise. Rugged rocks and sheer cliffs towering more than 200 metres above the sea and cutting deep into the ocean provide a spectacular background for the Parks’ rich bio-diversity. The scenic beauty of Cape Point is not its sole allure; it is also an international icon of great historical interest with many a visitor drawn to the area because of its rich maritime history. Home to the Flying Dutchman Funicular and the Two Oceans restaurant.

Tough to get a picture because of people pushing and shoving to get a picture next to the sign. Very windy and chilly on a 90 degree day.

Part of a tour, the visit here was fabulous. Walking from the lighthouse to the point, it was windy but the sun was out. I was wearing sandals, but trainers might have been more sensible as the last part was a bit rough (flipflops would...More

Cap Point is definitely worth visiting. We saw lots of families of baboons sunning themselves in groups, and the babies were just adorable! The flora and fauna are beautiful and the rugged coastline and water beyond look straight out of a movie. The ticket price...More
