Cape Point is not, as many think, the most southerly tip of the African continent – that honour goes to Cape Agulhas, which is also recognised as being the meeting point of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans. The landscape around Cape Agulhas is austere – rocky ridges running through flat valley floors scoured by a wind that blows unhindered from Antarctica. These winds and the local currents have caused many a shipwreck along the coast and the remains of some are still visible. So it is no surprise that Cape Agulhas is marked by a lighthouse. For those who appreciate dramatic scenery and geographical quirks and extremes, a drive down to Cape Agulhas makes an interesting inclusion on a trip to South Africa.
