Signal Hill is a 300-meter-high, flat-topped hill located right next to Lion’s Head and Table Mountain. This hill is one of the most popular and most visited landmarks in Cape Town. Back in the day, signal flags were used to communicate weather warnings to the ships in the bay. In the same manner, the ships used flags to signal for assistance. Thus, the name Signal Hill.

There is a road to the summit of the Hill which leads you to the vantage point. Enjoy the picturesque view of the city and the Atlantic seaboard from up high. This part of the hill is one of the best sun-downer and picnic spots in Cape Town. The spacious viewing area has picnic tables and quiet spots, which makes it ideal for a romantic sundowner date.

The Signal Hill drive starts from Kloof Nek. Upon reaching the corner of Kloof Nek and Tafelberg Road, turn right into Signal Hill road. As you drive to the summit, scenic views of Cape Town will unfold before your eyes. Aside from the Signal Hill drive, there are also a number of activities you can try like hiking, flying model planes or paragliding.
