Overview
More
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.

Wonderful location. Must come back and allow more time! Great hiking, walk or ride the funicular up to the lighthouse, enjoy the views at the top and on the way down. Just stunning

Drive yourself and take your time! Wear comfortable walking shoes, beware of the baboons but they are amazing to watch from afar! Also have cash for the tolls!

It is definitely worth it buying the funicular ticket to get to the top. The view there is amazing. It gets a little crowded at the top to take pictures with the city signs, but just wait a few minutes and you'll have your shot....More

Cape Point is an amazing place, no doubt. But best to get there before the masses, so you can get a real sense of the wild nature that it's all about. Also, we had a baboon incident. The alpha male of a group came up...More

Not visit is complete without doing the peninsula tour going over Chapman's Peak, stopping to see the penguins at Boulders Beach and standing at Cape Point staring towards Antarctica. You will not be disappointed.

was very busy with bus loads of tourists especially at the sign could do with putting another one up. Penguins and national park are nice areas
