Amazing views of Lions head, Camps Bay, the ocean and of course Table Mountain. It has an ice cream van along with a rectangle frame which enables you to take some very picturesque photos. Also parasailing is an option up here. A must do

Nice place to see the sunset in Cape Town. We walked up there but felt a bit insecure while walking back in the dark. Better take a car.
