Personal highlights

  1. Olifantsbosbaai: beautiful and untouched nature along the Cape Peninsula
  2. Shipwreck Trail: walking for about 2 hours to see several wrecked ships
  3. Atlantic Coast: rough sea and shallow waters claimed many strong ships
  4. Cape Point: part of the National Park just around the corner of Cape Town
  5. Shipwrecks: it's always impressive to examine the rusty metal remains
