Signal Hill Tours

star-4
221 Reviews
Signal Hill
As the most accessible of Cape Town’s three peaks, Signal Hill is a prime spot for catching sunset over the city. In addition to its spectacular scenery, Signal Hill also harbors the Noon Guns, two Dutch naval guns, and the last remaining Peninsula Shale Renosterveld vegetation.

The Basics
Not only does Signal Hill offer panoramic views and photo opportunities, you can drive right to the top of the plateau. That said, Signal Hill is a common feature on hop-on hop-off Cape Town bus tours and sightseeing tours that cover the highlights of the Cape Peninsula. Adrenaline seekers can take views to the next level by jumping off Signal Hill and paragliding over the city. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Signal Hill is much easier to access than Lion’s Head and Table Mountain, making it ideal for novice hikers. 
  • Signal Hill is the best overlook in the city if you are short on time but still want 360-degree views. 
  • The viewing area on top of Signal Hill has picnic tables, bathrooms, and wheelchair-accessible boardwalks. 

How to Get There
Signal Hill separates the City Bowl from the coastal suburbs; its close proximity to the city center means that you can easily reach the park by car or taxi. To avoid navigating Cape Town’s busy streets, visit as part of a hop-on hop-off tour or private excursion. 

When to Get There
If you want to avoid the crowds but still benefit from the best lighting for photographs, visit Signal Hill at sunrise rather than sunset. If you visit the park at midday, be prepared to cover your ears when the old-fashioned Noon Gun canons signal the hour with a noontime blast. 

Top Spots to Watch the Sunset in Cape Town
With many iconic peaks and west-facing beaches, Cape Town is home to some top-notch places to catch the sunset. While Signal Hill is one of the best, for even broader views, make the hike to the top of Lion’s Head or Table Mountain. To skip the hike and enjoy a classic beach sunset, head to Victoria Road and the beaches along the Atlantic Seaboard.
Address: Table Mountain National Park, Cape Town 8001, South Africa
