Cape point lighthouse
Walk or take a funicular (at own cost) up to South Africa's 3rd oldest lighthouse for a 360-degree view of the national park. The old lighthouse was launched in 1960 only to be decommissioned 40 years and dozens of shipwrecks too late after studies proved that its high altitude posed a great danger to sailors around the cape as they couldn't be able to see it when it was cloudy. A new lighthouse was then built at a lower altitude.
