About
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.

This is part of the cape of good hope experience. Driving through the rugged landscape on the way to the cape (and cape point) prepares one for the sight of the tip of the continent.

The toilets yesterday at the restaurant area were in a shocking condition, with no toilet people and water. This is supposed to be a first class tourist attraction, and not cheap, the least they can if keep the toilets clean. There were four staff hiding away, laughing and smoking, yet not looking after the place. I would not recommend this. Also no place where you can buy food, or sit out of the wind to have a coffee.

The scenery at Cape Point is stunning. Great to go to, given what it represents, but made extra special by the incredible views from the area. And I like the fact that people can get up to Cape Point on a vernacular if they can’t walk up, which one of our group needed to use. A must see in my opinion

Staff are rude, have a bad attitude, and think they are superior to you. They know nothing about customer service, they won’t call a manager to assist. If you forget your ID or passport don’t bother going . you will pay R350 to enter even if you have an ID number. Why must you prove you are a SA citizen? There is no phone signal or Wi-Fi. This is daylight robbery, save the money and have a meal instead of visiting here . There are many beautiful beaches and drives that are free to visit and you won’t have to be abused by the staff.

It is a terrific spot, the bottom of Africa. There is so much to see. There is a lot of wildlife. The lighthouse is impressive.

it's a short hike up a well laid out path or you can get the funicular to take you up to the top where you can see the view of the Cape and where the two oceans meet. You will probably also be lucky enough to see some baboons hanging around but careful, they may be aggressive. Don't let them in your car and definitely don't feed them.
