Cape Agulhas Reviews
I love Agulhas.
More info about Cape Agulhas
Search for Cape Agulhas on the Internet and you’re likely to see an image of the iconic candy-striped lighthouse that stands sentinel over the stormy seas at this, the southernmost tip of Africa.
Cape Agulhas is where the warm Indian Ocean meets the cold Atlantic Ocean and the unending churning of water results in choppy and unpredictable seas that have become a bit of a graveyard over the centuries for passing ships.
Portuguese sailors named the area Cabo das Agulhas, meaning Cape of Needles, for the strange lack of deviation from magnetic and true north on their compasses.
The area is rich in bird and aquatic life, along with an interesting cultural heritage, a place where ancient people once trapped fish. Nowadays, it’s a place where some arrive purely to stand at the southern tip of Africa, while others begin their 8000km journey of Africa to its northern crown somewhere in Tunisia.
