I suppose everyone has to make a stop for a photo to confirm they have been to the most south western point of Africa, but that’s pretty much it. It is quite scenic though and I saw lots of ostriches.

Best place ever! Do the hike to climb down the mountain to reach the second parking. You won’t regret it! Best view! Don’t forget to bring a windwall coat!

This is a must place to visit especially that it is the most southern point in Africa. The two oceans view is incredible but there is no difference between the oceans. You wont see the line that seperate the oceans.
