Welcome to the Cape Agulhas region of the Overberg.
Making your way along the R319 or R316, you’ll soon feel the excitement rise as you head to the southernmost region in Africa, Cape Agulhas. Discover the towns cradled at the southern corner of the Overberg with a vibrant combination of arts and culture, agriculture and adventure.
Make your way to Cape Agulhas to have your moment at the edge of the African continent where two oceans collide. But first, start your journey off with some rich history and culture in the small town of Napier. With its history intricately intertwined with that of its neighbouring town, Bredasdorp (coincidently the first town in South Africa), this town holds a number of significant historical monuments and buildings. Paving the way into the region with fields of blooming canola and grazing sheep, you immediately feel welcomed by the down-to-earth hospitality of the village.
Home to the second oldest working lighthouse in South Africa, the country’s largest sundial and the only town with two official names, this region has much to offer. Rolling farmlands give way to wondrous caves and abundant coastline that holds s treacherous history. Much of the region’s history can be viewed in the only shipwreck museum in Bredasdorp, before you travel on to view the remains of one still lost in time at the Tip of Africa.
This beautiful reason is known to hold some of the best holiday destinations for those who truly want to escape and reconnect with nature. With exhilarating outdoor activities, countless shops and art galleries to browse through and white sandy beaches to lounge on, Cape Agulhas is a great getaway no matter your tastes.
