Cape Agulhas is the most southerly point of Africa, and is the official meeting point of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans. L’Agulhas itself is a small town much enlivened over weekends and in the summer when the many holiday homes are filled. The fishing, both commercial and recreational, is excellent and it is a very popular spear fishing destination.

The most efficient route would be to follow the N2 until about 20km (12 miles) beyond Riviersonderend, and then take the R317 down to the coast. Driving through Hermanus and Gansbaai is much slower but far more interesting and could include a detour to Elim.
