There used to be vehicle access almost to the lighthouse but now they keep the gate locked so one can only walk around it. The views from the lighthouse are great. The blue roof tops of the buildings below, the surfers and boats make it an interesting spot for taking photographs.

Easy hike with impressive views of the rugged coastline and caves and becoming aware that this is where humankind probably first appeared.

We visited this location and enjoyed the views. There is a small area to park and then a short walk to the lighthouse to enjoy the view. We did not go inside as there isn't much to see.

For no apparent reason this rather nice site is surrounded by a high razor wire topped security fence that obstructs access to the walk around the cliff tops.

If you have some time to spare then I would recommend this quick and easy climb up to the lighthouse. Once at the top you get to experience amazing views of Mossel Bay.

Drove up to the lighthouse and had the most beautiful views over the ocen from the deck. The little rock rabbits were lazing on the rocks and grass.

It is not only attractive, but the views are great. It looks over the historical area and gives you a feeling of years past.
