Cape Agulhas Photographs

Updated Thursday, 29 December 2016

Photographs of Cape Agulhas, in the Western Cape, the geographic southern tip of the African continent, and the official point at which the cold Benguela current of the Atlantic Ocean and the strong Aghulhas current of the Indian Ocean meet.

Historically, the cape has been known to sailors as particularly hazardous, notorious for winter storms and huge rogue waves that can reach a spectacular height of 30 metres, so it’s no surprise that the coast is littered with wrecks or that the large red and white striped lighthouse was built as early as 1848.To find out more about this area visit Cape Agulhas Attractions.
