Due south - the southernmost tip of Africa
The Southernmost tip of Africa is also referred to as Cape Agulhas, a name given to the site by early Portugues navigators. In Portugues the word Agulhas means needle - which many believe refers to the razor like rocks which line the shore.
Some people believe that the Cape Agulhas comes from the fact that early explorers noticed their compass needles exhibited no magnetic variation at the site.
White sands and Blue Flags
The white sand Camps Bay beach is one of the most famous spots in Cape Town. This pristine beach is a certified Blue Flag beach - meaning that it meets the environmental standards established by the Foundation for Environmental Education.
Stony Point Nature Reserve is a coastal area in the Cape province. A singular breed of African Penguins call this beautiful site home. A boardwalk placed in parallel to the shoreline provides visitors the opportunity to the view these compelling birds.
Rich rocky shores
The northern side of Llandudno Beach is flanked by boulders and rocky inclines, providing natural paths for visitors to follow. Rocky shores provide rich biological environments which allow for the study of organisms which live between low and high tides.
Walking through history
Walking along the St James walk, visitors can view various historical sites including St James Cottage which was built by Abraham Auret in the 1850s. It is believed that, during the Anglo Boer War, Auret housed prisoners of war who hid in his barn before they set out across the bay in an endeavour to escape.
