Cape Agulhus is the southernmost point on the African continent. It also marks the official point at which the Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet. In reality the actual division between the two ocean currents themselves fluctuates seasonally. Historically Cape Agulhus is well known to sailors for its furious seas and gigantic waves, which have been known to reach heights of 30 metres (100 feet). In spite of the vast array of shipwrecks there would have been a great deal more were not for the Cape Agulhus lighthouse completed in 1848, the third to be built on the South African coastline. The old keeper's house attached to the lighthouse now contains a museum and a restaurant. Climb the lighthouse and walk the boardwalk. Either way you'll experience spectacular views of Cape wild seas.
