About Cape Agulhas

Cape Agulhas is a geographical landmark located at the southernmost tip of the African continent. Only 2.5 hours from Cape Town, L’Agulhas is recognised as South Africa’s most southern coastal village and holiday destination, marking the point where the Atlantic Ocean sand Indian Ocean meet.

The remarkable charm of L’Agulhas doesn’t stop there. The Cape Agulhas and Struisbaai coastlines are renowned for being home to some of the best fishing spots in the world. The convergence of the two ocean currents and the shallow Agulhas sandbank have created a haven for local fishing charters, deep sea fishing enthusiasts, and seafood lovers. 

Whale watching and marine life are also in abundance in L’Agulhas. Cape Agulhas remains one of the best places to watch Southern Right Whales on their journey to Cape Town’s coastal waters. Every year, between August and November, the southernmost point of Africa becomes home to migrating whales, dolphins, turtles, and female Southern Right Whales in search of shallow water and oxygen rich nurseries to birth their calves. Removed from the crowds of Hermanus and False Bay, Cape Agulhas is a rare delight for tourists and locals hoping to get up-close with the whales, as the region offers a more private and personalised whale watching experience.
