Cool stop to make

The lighthouse is an interesting stop and the beach is pretty. The light house is only closed at lunch and on weekends.

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 which is a very pleasant approach. For me, it is probably more of a landmark... More

There is an enchanting boardwalk approach to this Totem, this beacon of light, approached by a wandering boardwalk along the rugged coast which is always a delight of the blend of sea and rocks which might even reincarnate Vincent Van Gogh and inspire artists and photographers to linger and marvel at the wonders of nature: the diamonds of light upon...

If with time and when driving along the scenic coastal road, this is one place you might want to visit. Although tucked in a corner, the lighthouse is visible from the side of the road and is not too far from the main road. It is one of the taller lighthouses so those who want to climb all the way...

Good views and nice to see inside of lighthouse. Would benefit from some information boards or someone to provide information on history of the lighthouse. Worth a visit if you are in the area but check opening times first.

Lighthouse made of steel. Whole complex fenced so have to attract guards attention to get in. Good views from top. There was a childrens party going on one floor up...very unusal! Being made of steel it was quite noisy too, but friendly guard lets you in.

And yup it was a week day , not a holiday , weekend or public holiday. The number listed to call was never picked up and no one who drove in would... More

This is such a great outing for school age kids. Climbing to the top rewards you with views in every direction and you will not be disappointed.

AHHH! My husband and I spent the majority of the day at Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope and were to stop at Slangkop on the way back to Cape Town. I knew their hours, I had everything set and when we arrived, they were closed. As my best friend (who lives in South Africa) says, "That's South... More

After paying an entrance fee, the lighthouse keeper left us to wander alone inside the lighthouse. We made our way up 144 metal steps (landings included in this count) to the top. The panoramic view from up top is beautiful. The platform is wide enough to circumnavigate the top floor of the lighthouse. There was a large crack in the... More
