Just go! Very easy to drive up to - and tremendous views of the City, the mountain and Lion's Head. Toilets too.

Signal is easy to get to, very close to the city centre. During the day there are great views of the city, Table Mountain and the Atlantic ocean. Picnic tables are provided (just beware of the Guinea fowl), the parasailing / hang gliders take off just in front of you and towards the south are some very nice, quiet walks, with lots of wildlife.

The sunsets are exceptional,with unobstructed views over the Ocean. The city by night is also spectacular from above.

The view of the city from here is fantastic. It's not quite the view from the top of the mountain, but when we were there, the cablecar was closed for maintenance. This is an excellent alternative. Easy to get to --- and free!!!

My favourite thing here is you can drive to the top. We went up and watched the gliders jump off...amazing. have not been for sunset but would imagine it gets very busy.

You have to go to Signal view to take in the stunning views. You get to see the city bowl on one side and out to sea on the other. We went just before sun-set and the views were just spectacular!
