Cape Point cannot be missed on a trip to Cape Town and is a short 15 minute drive from Simonstown Guest House. Forming part of the Table Mountain National Park, Cape Point has been named a World Heritage site – rightly so with 250 species of birds and over 1 100 different plant species indigenous to this area, some of which arenâ€™t found anywhere else in the world.
Overlooking the area where the Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet, the strongest lighthouse in Southern Africa beams a warning to ships using this route – sadly 26 shipwrecks bare evidence that the seas around Cape Point are not to be underestimated.
Whale and dolphin watching (in season) can be done from the 249metre high cliffs while walking and hiking trails within the reserve treat visitors to a plethora of other small mammals and reptiles which call Cape Point their home. Catch the Flying Dutchman Funicular to the highest point, have a meal at the Two Oceans Restaurant which boasts spectacular views, or browse through the curio store for souvenirs to complete your visit to Cape Point in Cape Town before returning to the peace and tranquillity of Simonstown Guest House.
Whale season is July - October
