Stunning sunset view. Get a seat to the left side of the big mat (facing downhill) so that your view of the sunset is uninterrupted. Take a picnic and watch the sun go down or instead drive down to Camps Bay afterwards for a meal....More

One of the must do for Cape Town visitors. Many visitors leave Cape Town without taking a walk to see Signal Hill and the amazing views.
