This awesome place is hard to describe. It was beautiful, rugged, massive, and simple. We enjoyed the wildlife - baboons, ostrich, birds. The massive waves pounding the shore was mind blowing. It was well worth the drive and I would love to return someday.

It has a fantastic view and you have a chance to go to the top walking or by cable car. I recommend you do both.

The waves pounding the rocky shore is an awesome sight to behold. The expansive views of sea touching shore, and the sound of the waves, and the surf, were almost breathtaking. This and the history of the place makes it well worth the drive. One of our favorite excursions from a Cape Town.

Pivotal geo political barrier that when finally passed changed world trading economy. The East could accessed by sea bypassing the Ottoman Empire Trade routes and the broader access of trade changed the world. Is it fancy? No it is so important just a simple sign tells it - along with our great guide from Gate 1

Honestly, had I never seen this place with my own eyes, I would have struggled to believe that such beauty and perfection still exists in the world. It's an incredible place. I have no words to describe it. You have to see it for yourself - sparkling, clear oceans, rocks in all shapes, sizes, colours... beautiful, vegetation in shades of green, brown and grey... Just an experience worth having over, and over.

Wear comfortable clothing, and flat comfy shoes - you'll be doing a lot of up and downhill walking.
Might be worth taking a hat on very hot and sunny days as there is little shade. Today's weather (1 Sept) was perfectly cool, and moderately overcast though. Slightly windy, not too hot such that the uphill walking would feel even worse, but not cool enough to make you feel cold and uncomfortable. Also, note that there is no food served here, so bring your own snacks in case you get hungry, and some water, and take everything back with you, please -leave foot prints, not litter.

It can get incredibly packed during peak season, I hear - bumper to bumber traffic to get in. But none of that today. It was nice and peaceful, so best to experience it now so you don't waste time in queues, etc. We got there just before 2PM, and managed to leave at 5:30 having fully experienced all it had to offer, except Dias Beach (you were never ready for those stairs).

This HAS to go onto your bucketlist. The charge for entry is worth it.
