Where and Tips

South Africa

The picturesque lighthouse was built in 1849. It is mostly combined with the shipwreck walking trail and of course with the "Southern-Most Tip" of Africa." The trail is now called Spookdraai hiking trail due to the lost souls of the wrecked ships. It last less than two hours and starts at the lighthouse.



Make a stop in Struisbaai, 5 km before the Cape Agulhas. You might see a group of Manta Rays in the harbour.
