Welcome to the beautiful town of L’Agulhas and Struisbaai. Each year thousands of tourists from all over the world make the pilgrimage to the southernmost tip of Africa.

The Cape Agulhas region stretches from Bredasdorp to The Agulhas National Park. The average weather temperature in Agulhas is mild to cool, so be sure to take something warm to wear for when you explore the coastline.
A good start is to visit the SANParks Agulhas National Park where you can climb the 71-steps that lead to the top of the Cape Agulhas lighthouse and enjoy panoramic views that stretch as far as the eye can see. Also nearby is the remains of a Japanese shipwreck that lay scattered close to shore.
Outdoor adventurists can enjoy fynbos hikes and MTB trails that criss-cross the area, or quite simply pack a picnic to enjoy along the coast.
Most of the restaurants in Agulhas serve fresh seafood collected daily from the fishermen at Struisbaai Harbour. For those wanting something less fishy, there are bistros and coffee shops selling wholesome South African fare created with locally sourced ingredients.
