Arguably the Cape's most scenic spot, Cape Point has the angry Atlantic Ocean to its front and a fynbos nature reserve at its back
For centuries, this rocky tip has intimidated sailors rounding the coast, but as much at it was feared, it was also admired by travellers for its inspiring beauty. Today it may be easier to access the south-west point of the Cape Peninsula, and many visitors do, but its breathtaking charm remains practically untouched.
Cape Point is the culmination of the southern end of the Table Mountain National Park, a 7 750-hectare protected reserve. The area here, previously called The Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve, is covered in coastal fynbos and forms part of the diverse and world-renowned Cape Floral Kingdom.

More on Cape Point holidays
Exploring this section of Table Mountain National Park is most rewarding on foot, revealing its hidden beaches, interesting wildlife (ostrich, red hartebeest, Cape mountain zebra and a host of bird species) and beautiful fynbos valleys. The two-day Cape of Good Hope Hike leads all the way around the peninsula, stopping at a hut close to Cape Point for the night.
A simple drive through the national park is equally enjoyable, with lunch at the Cape Point Restaurant where you can enjoy sushi and other seafood dishes on the deck overlooking the crashing waves. The Flying Dutchman gives a beautiful look into the history of the Point. This funicular, a cable-drawn railway, takes travellers on a three-minute ride from the lighthouse’s lower station at 127 metres to the upper station at 286 metres. There are many paths and walkways to explore around the Point on foot and you can also climb to the upper station if you have the stamina.
