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

We came to Slangkop Point Lighthouse when driving along the stunning western coastline. You can't really miss the lighthouse which is interesting and beautiful in itself.

This is a rather iconic lighthouse and has been there for many decades if not longer. But the grounds are fenced now so access is only when open. If you like lighthouses you can still have a close drive by and get a picture.

I think what I love about this lighthouse is the access to it. The boardwalk (Die Kom) is a lovely walk along the shoreline. There are benches along the way where you can sit and enjoy the Atlantic ocean's crashing waves, and the surfers braving...More

If you are interested in lighthouses Slangkop is close to Cape Town and the views are stunning. On one side you overlook Hout Bay and Chapmans Peak Drive and on the other side is nothing until you get to South America. Well worth a visit.

We could not enter, as it was a public holiday. But the facilities seem well-maintained. Very clean and neat.

If lighthouses are your thing, then this is probably a good place to visit, if you're in the area of Kommetjie. It's not special, so not worth a particular trip just to see it. There is a lovely boardwalk running near the shore towards it...More
