CAPE POINT

One point. One million points of view

Escape to Cape Point, where the land meets the sea in a majestic embrace

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 park’s rich bio-diversity. Cape Point falls within the southern section of Table Mountain National park. The natural vegetation of the areas – fynbos – comprises the smallest but richest of the world’s six floral kingdoms.


Take a ride on the Flying Dutchman funicular to the steps of the new lighthouse and look-out points above. Take in the unobstructed vistas from your vantage point while discovering the historic lighthouse on the rocky ledges below. With boundless fresh air resulting in an appetite, enjoy a delicious meal paired with incredible views at the Two Oceans Restaurant or grab a bite to eat at The Food Shop and find the perfect picnic spot in the park. Savour this memorable occasion by purchasing a few mementos and souvenirs that will forever remind you of the beauty found here.

“The perfect way to reach Cape Point. The funicular is the perfect way to reach Cape Point and enjoy the view and the old lighthouse. Do not hesitate to go up with the funicular because you need to walk longer to reach the new lighthouse when you arrived at the summit of the Flying Dutchman Funicular”
