A pretty place to stop for half an hour to check out the view. Parking is easy. The view is worth the stop

Bit of a drive but it was worth it. Good view of the surrounding mountains including table mountain. Good views of the city too.

We didn't have the time to hike or wait on a weekend day to take the cable car up to the top of Table Mountain so someone suggested going up here, well worth it for the time frame we had.

An exceptional view is to be experienced (like on an Easter morning) watching the sun rise over the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. Turning anti-clockwise one looks onto Green Point, Sea Point and Clifton.

This is by far one of the most satisfying and breath taking views in all of Southern Africa. preferably take camera and a hat as it can be a bit bright on the hill.
