signal hill is one of all the nice places you can climb up to and enjoy the views. to signal hill you can also drive up. be careful walking around on your own since mugging has been reported and especially after dark a warning is appropriate.

If you take the 2-day-ticket for City Sight Seeing Tour Bus, you get a free sunset trip to Signal Hill. We brought food with us (more like a snack) as you can have a picnic there while waiting for the sunset. The views on the way to the top is amazing, also when the bus was going down the hill, it was just such an unforgettable experience. Cape Town is really beautiful.

The views from this peak is truly amazing, with an unspoiled view of table mountain on one side, Sea Point on another and the city and harbour on a third. If at all cloudy, don't waste your time - rather wait for a clear day to experience the beautiful view. The only gripe that I have is the lack of information. One doesn't know, for instance, what you are looking at. You see an island in the distance, but there is no information or sign telling you that the island is Robben Island. There is also no information on where to stand to view the different parts of the city.

The road up to the viewing point is long, but very well maintained. The parking is ample, and well demarcated. There is a park official present as well.

Definitely worth a visit!

We visited Signal Hill at night. Stunning views over Cape Town, Robben Island and Table Mountain. Well worth the visit when in Cape Town

It's something you can easily miss if you don't spend a lot of time in Cape Town. The view is nice...
