Located at the southwestern tip of Africa, in the Cape of Good Hope section of the Table Mountain National Park, Cape Point has captivated travellers for centuries with its dramatic scenery and fascinating history. The rugged coastline, sandy beaches, valleys and mountains are a haven for hikers, surfers, anglers and cyclists.  For those who enjoy life at a more relaxed pace, the Flying Dutchman Funicular transports visitors up a steep slope to the top lighthouse and the Two Oceans Restaurant, with its spectacular views over False Bay, is a great spot for light meals or their signature seafood platter.

Experience It
You are at the south-western most tip of Africa and your adventure has just begun.
The Flying Dutchman Funicular lifts you 238 metres above the ocean, to the lighthouse; the ride offers the most breathtaking panoramic views.
Enjoy lunch at the Two Oceans Restaurant or pick up a bite at the Food Shop.
Don't leave without your Cape Point certificate or a keepsake from one of the shops. A full day discovery to this SW Tip of Africa will reward you with memories to treasure forever.

Flying Dutchman Funicular
Located at Cape Point, the Flying Dutchman funicular is a cable-railway believed to be the only commercial funicular of its type in Africa. It is named after the local legend of the Flying Dutchman ghost ship which is still said to be haunting the waters around Cape Point. The Flying Dutchman Funicular saves visitors a long uphill walk from the car park to see the old lighthouse and enjoy the panoramic views.

Two Oceans Restaurant

The Two Oceans Restaurant occupies an enviable position above False Bay. The restaurant is as famous for its seafood cuisine as it is for a superb wooden deck that looks out onto one of the most dramatic ocean views in South Africa.
Whether you're in need of a scrumptious breakfast or light lunch, a delicious seafood selection or a gourmet salad, you're sure to find something that suits your taste. You may also like to sample some of the Western Cape's finest wines - a cool chardonnay, or an award-winning cabernet.

Cape Point Logo Store
The Cape Point Logo Store is the ultimate souvenir shop at the Point! Visitors can choose from a wide variety of merchandise branded with the Cape Point Logo, from t-shirts & fleece tops, caps & hats, mugs & teaspoons, to key rings, magnets, & books!
