Cape Agulhas is the most southern tip of Africa. It is located in South Africa's Western Cape Province. It is not the most spectacular cape or the most popular with tourists, but as the Southern tip of Africa it still attracts a growing number of people each year.
The official location of the most southernly tip of the continent is 34°49'58" south and 20°00'12" east.
The Southern most tip of Africa is dominated by three towns. Arniston, Struisbaai and L’Agulhas.
Cape Agulhas is not as spectacular as the Cape Peninsula, but there are only few people and you can enjoy the lonely atmosphere far from all big cities.
In the town of Agulhas is also the second oldest lighthouse of the country.
Whale watching in the spring is fascinating as are the spring flowers. Fishing, Scuba Diving, Surfing are great in this part of the world.
Don't forget the foot of Africa marathon held each year in October.
