5 great spots to see Table Mountain

September 23, 2017

Taking a cable car up Cape Town’s iconic Table Mountain is one way to see some amazing city views. But what about views of the mountain itself?

Below is a list of 5 places which you can visit to see beautiful views of Table Mountain.

1.Lion’s Head

Take a hike up Lion’s Head to enjoy a view of Table Mountain from an angle. If you aren’t in the mood to hike all the way to the summit, you can still view the mountain from the first incline of the Lion’s Head trail.

2. Signal Hill

A sunrise drive along Signal Hill could turn you into an early bird when you see the sun rays illuminate the mountain. You can pull over at any of the designated parking areas which offer you the best view of Table Mountain.

3. Sunset Beach

Take a stroll along Sunset Beach while enjoying the wide view of Table Mountain. As the name suggests, visiting at sunset is definitely recommended.

4. Big Bay

Big Bay has one of my favourite views of Table Mountain as you get to see the entire mountain from across the ocean. You could either take a walk on the beach or enjoy the view of the mountain from one of the restaurants at Eden on the Bay.

5. Tygerberg Hill

Tygerberg Hill is located in the Northern Suburbs and offers visitors a chance to take a walk in the nature reserve while overlooking the entire city with Table Mountain in the distance. Keep in mind that there is a small conservation fee to enter the reserve.
