Cape Point, South Africa

A visual feast with turquoise seas, jagged stone cliffs and a diversity of flora and fauna.

If there was ever a bucket-list location to put in your Cape Town itinerary – it’s Cape Point. A scenic drive of about 70 km outside of Cape Town, this national park is a national treasure. Turquoise seas, jagged stone cliffs, a diversity of flora and fauna as well as a haven for birds, Cape Point is a visual feast. Contrasting sea blues, white sandy beaches and lush green foliage pattern the landscape in colour. 

Hikers, birders, nature lovers, the historically fascinated and culturally curious should all book a day trip to Cape Point. A day out includes exploration of the Cape Peninsula, driving through the harbour suburb of Hout Bay, over the scenic drive of Chapman’s Peak, through the quaint village of Simons Town and onto the Cape of Good Hope National Park, the home of Cape Point.
