Agulhas Information

Agulhas

Agulhas is the southernmost town in Africa. Being located at the very tip of the legendary foot of Africa, it is a prime tourist destination. The koppie behind the lighthouse offers a panoramic view of the point where the Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet and of ships passing by.

At the end of the 15th century the early Portuguese seafarers christened this tip "Cabo das Agulhas" which means "Cape of Needles" and refers to the needle of the compass which at this point shows no real deviation between true north and magnetic north. A truly magic and desolate place, where suddenly one begins to understand the difficulties the early seafarers faced.

As determined by the International Hydrographic Organisation, the two mighty oceans - Indian and Atlantic - meet at the most southern tip of the continent of Africa - Cape Agulhas.

Cape Agulhas (Cape of Needles) is the southernmost point of the continent of Africa and is also the official   dividing point between the Atlantic and Indian oceans although the actual division varies acording to the   fluctuations of the Benguela and Agulhas currents.  Find Agulhas accommodation on our Agulhas accommodation page. The village of Napier was founded in 1838 as a result of a local dispute over the location of a church for the  district and was named for the then governor of the Cape.  There are a toy museum, a water mill, a giant sundial and an oxwagon memorial.  Find Agulhas accommodation on our Agulhas accommodation page. Arniston, named after the 1815 wreck with very heavy loss of life of the East Indiaman Arniston, is also know as Waenhuiskrans (Carriage house cliff) after this cave which is large enough to fit a wagon and its span of oxen.
