Table Mountain – A Cape Town Tourism photo essay

Blog Featured Image

The single most photographed view of Table Mountain is from Blouberg beach. This is almost always a postcard-perfect perspective of this wonderful mountain and shows the table top off at its best.

The beach itself is great for late afternoon or early morning strolls and there are also restaurants facing the sea where you can enjoy a drink or meal while watching the sunset.

This is a view from the upper cableway station looking down on Lion’s Head. A good tip is to buy tickets online at tablemountain.net/ to avoid some of the queues.

The cable cars rotate and offer everyone the opportunity to enjoy stunning views during the ascent and descent.

During the summer holidays Table Mountain is floodlit at night and looks even more imposing as it towers above Cape Town. This photo was taken from Signal Hill.

Signal Hill is best visited early in the evening and there is usually security at the parking area. It is not advisable, though, to stop in isolated areas along this road at night.
