Make at Point of It!

Home to some incredible diversity and some of the flowers and plant species ...

When staying at Fin Whale Beach House we thoroughly recommend a visit to the nearby Cape Point Nature Reserve and Cape Point itself – the very tip of the Cape Peninsula. This is where cliffs and rocky landscapes tower some 200m above the ocean, tapering down to an impressive lighthouse accessible via the wonderful “Flying Dutchman” funicular. The reserve is part of the southern section of Table Mountain National Park and is home to a variety of wildlife and can be easily explored on foot. It’s views are legendary and absolutely breathtaking, and in season – from August to December – you can even spot southern right whales in the waters off the reserve.

It’s also home to some incredible diversity and some of the flowers and plant species that make up the famed Cape Floral Kingdom, which surrounds us here at Fin Whale Beach House. Dominated by “fynbos” – literally meaning “fine bush” in Afrikaans – it’s one of six recognised floral kingdoms in the world and is a biodiversity hotspot made up of 13 separate protected areas in both the Western and Eastern Cape provinces. So if you’re hiking in the area during your stay, you’ll discover a wealth of plants and flowers that are found nowhere else in the world!
