This site is just amazing for the views of the mountains with the town below and the ocean beyond the village. Very nice sleepy town - stop for a coffee and just take in the views. Well worth it. Try to go in the evening so that you can enjoy the sunset.

So very wonderful for our last day in South Africa . We luckily tried to book tea fir hours at the Lord NELSON and were treated very poorly on the phone so we found an alternative that was great . Right on the coast. Sit in the porch and then explore the beautiful hotel . I'd suggest that you order... More

The beach is lovely with an amazing backdrop. The sun set here really sets the mountains on fire. Loved it.

My daughter and I had a weeks stay in Cape Town and a highlight for us was definitely the Buffet High Tea on Saturday the 21st Jan at the 12 Apostles Hotel. The table selection was outstanding, starting off with savoury eats like cocktail sandwiches, vegetable poppers and a cheese board and then moving over to the sweet treats which... More

We had dinner at ths hotel in the Azure restaurant as a special teat. It is not cheap, by SA standards, but sill good value for overseasviitors. We had the 5 course taster menu, which was superb. The setting is beautiful, and the staff so friendly and helpful. Although no shorts or open sandals are allowed, the dress code is... More

After a terrible lunch at Twelve Apostles December 2016; nearly an hours wait for the main course, prawn stroganoff, of which i only had few mouthfuls, bland, old mushrooms giving it a grey colour ..... no seasoning, just cream, bland and unappetising. On sitting down when we arrived, we waited twenty minutes before going to ask a waitress to get... More

I visited this area as part of the day tour to Cape Point. the actual number of the rock formations can vary depending on who you are with as a tour guide. It is worth seeing as part of a tour as we did, but I would not go there just to see them.

Grab a local tour group and head off they cover all these places and you get a commentary as you roll.
