My Favorite places on the Earth~
Maui on our last trip feb 2009
Cape Town when the 2 points are meeting At the tip of the Cape Peninsula – 60 km south-west of Cape Town – the rugged rocks and sheer cliffs cut deep into the ocean to split False Bay from the colder waters of the western seaboard. This outcrop of the Table Mountain National Park is called Cape Point. And this is where our adventure begins…
To reach Cape Point from Cape Town, you have two options if you’re travelling by car:
For the most spectacular journey, take the M6 route via Hout Bay and drive along Chapman’s Peak. Then, from Noordhoek, follow the magnificent coastline to Kommetjie, Sweetwater, Witsand, Misty Cliffs and Scarborough, where you head inland and all along the top of a mountain plateau.
Or take the Blue Route (M4) to Muizenberg, Fish Hoek and along the coast to historic naval village of Simon's Town. Then continue along the coastal road to the entrance of the Table Mountain National Park. A scenic drive through the reserve leads you to the parking area at Cape Point.
