"Go to the top of Signal Hill" Signal Hill Tip by DesertRat

Signal Hill, Cape Town: 7 reviews and 15 photos

  View of Sea Point and Robben Island from the Hill
by DesertRat

One of the best possible ways to orient yourself in Cape Town is to go to the top of Signal Hill, from which the Noon Gun is fired each day -- albeit a little farther down the hill. The views over the sea, the city, and Table Mountain are simply superb. There's usually an ice cream truck up on top, too, especially if it happens to be a hot day. We were taken up there directly from the airport by a friend who picked us up, so I'm not altogether sure whether there is bus service or not. I'm not sure it would be worth the taxi fare if you are reduced to that possibility.
