A Guide to Accommodation, Activities, Restaurants & Businesses in Cape Agulhas, South Africa

General Information

Cape Agulhas sits at the southernmost tip of Africa and is located in the Overberg region of the Western CapeSouth Africa.  A form of translation from Portuguese as the “Cape of Needles” named so after early navigators noticed that the compass north coincided with the true north of the region.  Until the 20th century the town was known as Cape L’Agulhas and today carries various versions from Cape Agulhas to L’Agulhas.

The village is situated on a rocky headland where the Atlantic and Indian oceans spectacularly collide.  Infamous for stormy winter months and rogue waves Cape Agulhas can sometimes really feel like the edge of the world!  The conflicting currents of warm and icy water causes fairly hazardous wave conditions and after many ship wrecks in bygone times a lighthouse was erected in 1848.

The lighthouse today is a major tourist attraction in the form of a museum and has a charming restaurant as an added feature.  The light is operated by Transnet National Ports Authority.

Cape Agulhas is part of the developing Agulhas National Park which is host to over 1 700 botanical species and the breeding site for many rare birds such as the African Black Oystercatcher.
