At Cape Point we enjoy an invigorating walk or gentle ride up with the funicular to the lighthouse at the top. You will enjoy a magnificent view of False Bay to your left, the Hottentots Holland mountains straight ahead and a pristine beach welcoming the waves of the frigid Atlantic waters to your right.
Its truly an awesome sight….and on some days…you better hold onto your hats! The South Easters that caused this area to become known as the Cape of Storms can blow with gale force invigorating power.
We travel back through the Nature reserve along another beautiful coastal road to visit Boulders Beach where a naturalised colony of African Penguins have set up home.
The waiter like penguins are unphased by the human interest and the cleverly designed walkways and viewpoints afford great picture opportunities without disturbing their natural habitat. A varied day of exploration ends with a gentle drive back to your hotel in the Mother City.
