When it’s time to escape the chaos of the city, head to Agulhas to reclaim your soul.
Here, where the Indian Ocean meets the Atlantic, and the sea meets the mountain, you are on the southernmost point of Africa.
Historically, the cape has been known to sailors as a major hazard on the traditional clipper route. It is sometimes regarded as one of the great capes. The town of L’Agulhas is located near to the cape.
Cape Agulhas has a spectacular coastline, consisting of a gradually curving coastline with rocky and sand beaches. A survey marker and a new ikon depicting the African continent are located at the most Southern tip of Africa.
The waters of the Agulhas Bank off the coast are quite shallow and are renowned as one of the best fishing grounds in South Africa.
You may be swimming in the tidal pools or surfing in the open sea where two oceans meet. You could also be swimming or surfing at the longest (14 Kilometers) sandy beach of nearby Struisbay. You may choose hiking, whale spotting, tennis, bowling, horse riding or rock and surf angling.
Attractions close to South Point are the southernmost tip of Africa, the historic Cape Agulhas Lighthouse and ancient fish traps. The Agulhas National Park is on the doorstep.
