Best seen by rental car. There is a funicular to super views. Combined with Chapman's Peak drive it makes for a good day.

Great day trip to a spectacular location. Lots to see on the way there and back (from Cape Town) as it is also possible to incorporate visiting Simon's Town and the Penguin colony.

Took the Cape Point full day excursion and it circles the whole penninsula with two stops; a short one at Boulder beach to see the penguins, and a long one at Cape of Good Hope Natural Park. The views from the lighthouse at the top...More
