On 3 October, Cape Point hosted few amazing social media influencers to experience Cape Point and to launch their new summer campaign: #BeTheFirst.

BeTheFirst Cape Point

We started with a stop at the Cape of Good Hope where they enjoyed beautiful views and took advantage of the photo opportunities at the sign. The Cape Of Good Hope is the most South-Western Point of the African Continent and it can get very windy there!

This was followed by a calming and soul-filling yoga experience on the Two Oceans Restaurant deck. The views here didn’t disappoint either, overlooking the False Bay coastline was an incredible view of the ocean and mountains. Yoga instructor Beatrice Gilbo took us through the yoga poses with ease, even with us newbies!

After building up quite an appetite we were treated to a scrumptious breakfast at the Two Oceans Restaurant. The breakfast menu included all of the favourites such as bacon and eggs, Eggs Royale and warm, buttery flapjacks.

What’s a visit to Cape Point without a trip on the Flying Dutchman Funicular? We all hopped on the funicular for the 3-minute journey to the top station with its great views and access to the old lighthouse.

Why #BeTheFirst ?

Because early birds at Cape Point get:

Great light and morning views – this makes for great Instagram-worthy shots with no other tourists photobombing your selfie.

No queues – that’s right, no queues. One of the joys of being the first at Cape Point is that everyone else is still asleep. You snooze, you lose.

Amazing breakfast (think toasted lemon brioche, smoked trout, baby spinach, poached eggs, sauce hollandaise)… yum! We’re not exaggerating when we say it’ll be one of the best breakfasts you’ll ever have. And to top it off, you’ll have gorgeous views over False Bay while enjoying your latte.

Cheaper funicular rates  –  from 1 November we’re launching differential rates for the funicular. If you ride the funicular between 9 am and 12 pm, you pay R70 for a return ticket (normally R80).

So get to Cape Point early, share your experience with @CapePointSA #BeTheFirst and you could win awesome prizes.

There is no one way to explore all of the Cape Town Big 6, and much of what makes each of them so special is the variety of things to see and do at each. So if possible, take your time to explore each of the city’s most visited tourist attractions in as much depth as possible – as any local will tell you, you can spend a lifetime at each of the Big 6 and still not tire of them. Find the 3 and 4 day itineraries and tips here.
