Hiking at Cape Point
Hiking at Cape Point is a fantastic way to experience the most Southerly tip of the Cape Peninsula and the most Southwestern tip of Africa. Although there are plenty of trails to choose from the best includes a combination of beach, cliff and mountain hiking.
You start the trail at Platboom beach. Here the wide expanse of white sand, turquoise ocean and blue sky offer an idyllic start to your day. The first hour of the hike follows a small trail through the dunes towards Cape Point. In many places you can choose between walking on the beach, hopping from rock to rock or following the trail though the fynbos.
