We were fortunate to have perfect sunny weather when we went in March. There is a plaque marking the southern tip of Africa, where the Indian and... More

As part of our touring we decided to detour to here and were not disappointed. Great views and recognition that you can't get much further south than this. Well laid out paths to follow and nice photo opportunity when you get there.

We visited Cape Agulhas for the first time this year, despite having visited South Africa on two previous occasions. It is very well signed and very clean. The weather was warm and sunny. There are boardwalks which makes it very easy to walk to the southernmost tip where the two oceans meet. It is wild, desolate and uncommercialised, a photographer's... More

When you are in Cape Town or Western Cape don't miss the chance to say I have been to the southermost tip of Africa where two oceans meet because it is not hat far out and easily accessible. The new walkway open this attraction up for everybody to enjoy.

The Saga tour that we were part of was named "Where Oceans Meet" and this culminated with the actual place with a visit to Cape Agulas. It is also the most southerly point on the African continent and I felt privileged to be there!

I was so lucky to reach the southernmost point of Africa on a perfect day. They are busy constructing a boardwalk from the lighthouse to the point which is ideal for wheelchairs. Definitely a must do!

We are seasonal residents in Struisbaai where we have a house. This resto/shop was always great, but since the revamp, its even better. The friendly service is always great. Whether for a toasted or some cake and tea and or breakfast, it NEVER disappoints. When it gets busy the owners husband Herman is on hand to assist. It also has... More
