Directions to Cape Agulhas Guest House

From Cape Town/Cape Town International Airport
Take the N2 national road via Somerset West, Grabouw and Bot River to Caledon. Turn right into Caledon town and follow that road, right through the town of Caledon. Be particularly aware of numerous speed zones and speed traps along the first 100km of your journey. The next village is Napier, about 50km from Caledon. Pass through Napier and 15km further you arrive at the town of Bredasdorp. At the 4th 4-way stop you turn right towards Struisbaai and L’Agulhas. The road is fairly well signposted. 30km further you arrive at Struisbaai. Drive through Struisbaai and you will see the sign “L’Agulhas”, indicating that you have arrived in Africa’s southernmost town of L’Agulhas. We are located exactly 2km from the entrance to L’Agulhas. The turn-off is marked with a standard brown and white roadsign and arrow. At night time the entire wall and gable of the building is brightly illuminated with blue floodlights. If you arrive during daytime, look for Cooper Street on your right (2km from the “Welcome in Agulhas” sign). If you miss Cooper Street, do not worry, take the next turn to your right which is Crescent Street. We are located at the corner of Cooper and Crescent Streets.

From the Garden Route

Follow the N2 national road in a westerly direction until you reach the town of Swellendam. Approximately 13km after Swellendam is a signpost on your left indicating “Bredasdorp” and the most southern tip of Africa. Bredasdorp is about 55km from the turn-off. At the first 4-way stop in Bredasdorp, turn left. At the next 4-way stop you turn right towards Struisbaai and L’Agulhas. From this point, follow the same directions as above.
Please remember to:
Drive carefully and safely at all times
