The guide highlights the different points of interest along the way and is at hand to answer any questions you have about the route, Cape Point and Boulders Beach.

Cape Point is your first stop, where you can enjoy a bite to eat before exploring further. The Cape Point Nature Reserve offers some of the most breathtaking mountain and ocean scenery in the world. Using the Flying Dutchman funicular to the viewing point below the lighthouse, you can admire the views across False Bay. There is an optional 40 min hike from Cape Point to the Cape of Good Hope. At Cape Point, you can also follow the footsteps of early Portuguese explorers Vasco Da Gama and Bartolomeu Dias, and enjoy a number of short walking trails leading to beautiful beaches and viewpoints.

After exploring Cape Point, you will enjoy a beautiful coastal drive to Simons Town via Miller's Point to our next stop, Boulders Beach.

Boulders Beach is home to a colony of endangered African penguins in Cape Town, so this is your once-in-a-lifetime chance to come within metres of them in a natural environment. The pristine beach surrounded by impressive granite boulders is part of Table Mountain Nature Reserve.

History of Cape Point

Cape Point lies within the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve which forms part of the Cape Floral Kingdom, the smallest of the world’s floral kingdoms and one of the most diverse. The point was named the Cape of Storms by Bartolomeu Dias in 1488, as it was so dangerous to navigate. Frequent violent storms and harsh winds were famous for forcing ships to run aground on the rocky coastline. The area was made safer in 1859, with the addition of a landmark lighthouse, which is now used as a central monitoring point for all other lighthouses on the coast of South Africa.
