Southernmost Lighthouse in Africa

Written By: jeff

Posted On: December 20th, 2013

One of my favorite places in the world is the southernmost tip of Africa, Cape Agulhas. Part of it is nostalgia. When I was an exchange student in South Africa, one of my host dad’s was from the region. So, I got to spend a bit of time there. There’s not much there. It’s a town with a windswept beach that shuts down after dark. But there’s something about looking south and knowing that there’s no more land between you and Antarctica that keeps taking me back. On the shore is the old lighthouse. It’s still in operation as the coastline in this part of the world can be quite dangerous. You can go up and take in the 360-degree view of the coast, the neighboring towns and a bit of scrub-brush veld, which is the site of the world’s smallest plant kingdom – the Cape Floral Kingdom. I took this photo on my last trip to South Africa and it’s today’s Suh-Weet Shot.

    Great post, hope to visit South Africa someday. Is this easy to reach from Cape Town?
