We went on an evening trip up the hill to see the sunset. It’s a good viewpoint but the journey up and back was clogged with cars poorly parked. Our sunset was not special, and we thought the trip was one of those things you...More

Signal Hill is beautiful! You don’t have to be silly enough to jump off of it like we did but I’d highly recommend it! It’s so stunning and adds to the already wonderful views...

The view of the bay is beautiful from Signal Hill. If Table mountain is inaccasible (as was when we were there) this is a decent alternative.

Fab views over table mountain, lions head and the entire city. Loved the view of the waterfront and stadium. Lots of picnic spots if you wanted to come for lunch with a view.

If you climb to the Lions Head, you will look down upon Signal Hill. It is a spectacular view! While I didn't go to the outer loop, I saw it from above!

The best way to see Table Mountain by far. We had an experience in NYC where we waited about 6hrs in a queue to go up to the top of the Empire State Building, and we were rather disappointed in the end. However, a couple...More
