Owner description: 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.

First of all, getting to Cape Point is a joy, with scenic views, vineyards, and quaint towns en route. The Point itself has numerous seaside hikes, expansive views of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans, and tons of baboons. Great seacoast restaurants, too.

“Stunning scenery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

But too many tourists taking endless photos - move on and let other people have the opportunity. The reserve is also a great place consider trekking and The route up from Cape Town is spectacular

I love it - as always! Great landscape and a visit to the tow ocean restaurant with view over False Bay is always a treat.

Pleasant enough place but touristy as you would expect. We had a hire car and there are lots of touch buses here. Nice walk to the summit and some nice views. Watch for the baboons....oh and the ostriches as you drive in

“Amazing views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

This is a super spot to check out if your in Cape Town for a week or so. If its a clear day you will see some amazing views. Be careful of the wind and baboons.
