Due to seasonal changes, there are various opening times set throughout the year to coincide with daylight hours. Typically, the Cape Of Good Hope gate opens at sunrise and closes at sunset, and vehicles leaving after closing time are fined accordingly, so be sure to adhere to the times indicated at the gate when entering the park. There are few sights as spectacular as the sun rising over False Bay, and we highly recommend making the extra effort to get there at opening time to witness this event.
