Cape Agulhas

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

 

Cape Agulhas sits at the southernmost tip of Africa and is located in the Overberg region of the Western Cape.  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 town 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.  Read about the two oceans meeting in this interesting article "Cape Point: Where South Africa’s two oceans meet" along with other great articles on this beautiful town.
