“Stunning View with easy access”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Having lived in and near Cape Town for most of my life, I have never ceased to be excited and in awe of the beauty of our mother city as seen from Signal Hill. The vantage point offers a panoramic, spectacular view of the city, Robben Island and outlying areas up the West Coastas well as the mountain ranges in the distance (as far as Stellenbosch and Hottentots Holland Mountains) - a photographer's dream. Night time views are also spectacular.

“Nice view”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Nice place to take a view pics during the day and enjoy the views other than that nothing more to do. Most times very full but worth a visit at least once to have a look at the view but toilet facilities are bad and parking becomes a nightmare getting in and out.One is more than enough.

“Priceless views”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

On a good clear day, one can see Robben Island (prison island where Nelson Mandela was held). The view of the Atlantic ocean is simply amazing. You can basically get an almost 360 degree view of Cape Town, Table Mountain, etc on a good day, and it's all for free. A definite must for all first time visitors; it's also a great place to have a picnic with a good panoramic view.

“Definitely worth a visit”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

High above Cape Town this was on our tour - and was the best vantage point we had that day as Table Top was shut in fog and cloud. There is a metal frame for the obligatory photo of you with Table Top in the background. Lots of birds wandering around very tame. Cold in May though.

“Great view of the city”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

This is an awesome FREE view of the entire city! We went after dinner, but this would be a great sunset spot
