What a fabulous experience... Be warned, there are 144 steps to the top but the view is absolutely worth the climb. For me though, being so close to the lens was also a thrill. And afterwards, you can walk along the spectacular boardwalk along the...More

This is a good one to do if afraid of heights! I am afraid of heights and yet I did this lighthouse climb all the way to the top. The nice thing is each level is separated with a floor so it doesn't feel as...More

Despite the height and the steps this is a unique place to visit. The view is spectacular and the staff friendly and informative. Check up on opening times before you visit as it opens at 10 and closes for lunch.

Cute little coastal village. Here I want to retire one day. Many stairs to climb the lighthouse, but definitely worth the effort when you get up.

Quick stop to take in the scenery, marvel at the beauty of the Cape, snap a pic and then continue the drive to Cape of Good Hope.

Well worth a visit to walk to or from the Kommetjie village where there is a choice of restaurants. A well maintained boardwalk makes the walk from the little Kom to the lighthouse and back an absolute pleasure. Always a popular place for surfers on...More

This must rank of one of the iconic seascape scenes in South Africa. The drive to the lighthouse is well marked and a wooden walkway takes you right to the boulders leading down to the water's edge. We had a clear wind free day with...More
