Cape Point, at the southwestern tip of Africa, has captivated travellers for centuries with its dramatic scenery and fascinating history.

The original lighthouse still stands at 238 metres above sea-level and access to this historical building is by an exhilarating three-minute ride in the wheelchair-accessible Flying Dutchman funicular. Those fit enough can also see the new lighthouse lower down, and after exploring, visitors can enjoy a meal with breathtaking views over False Bay at the Two Oceans Restaurant. This narrow stretch of land, dotted with beautiful valleys, bays and beaches, contains a mix of extraordinarily diverse and unique fauna and flora, and is a haven for hikers, surfers, anglers and cyclists.
