This beautiful area of rugged coastline was proclaimed a national park in 1999. Since then it has been under continuous development and visitors are multiplying each year. The highlights of the park are the cairn that marks the southern-most tip of Africa and the ships graveyard, once known as ‘the Cape of Storms’, where some 250 ships have been wrecked over time.
This part of Africa has a very rich cultural heritage, dating back thousands of years. You'll discover many interesting things and the history of the place by visiting the unique lighthouse museum.
The park also has accommodation offers if you're interested in spending some days here.
