Cape Point is the windiest place on earth after Cape Horn as it faces the largest body of water in the world – Cape Town to Antarctica.
Cape Point lies at the most south westerly point of Africa and is at the tip of a magnificent nature reserve comprising indigenous plants, spectacular coastal views and Cape Wildlife including our seafood eating Chacma Baboons.
