Southernmost Tip Of Africa

Cape Agulhas ("Cape of the Needles") is a rocky headland in the Western Cape. It is the geographic southern tip of Africa and the official dividing point between the Atlantic and Indian Oceans.

A small cairn stands in Cape Aghulas marking the spot where the Indian and Atlantic Oceans mix, popular for tourist photos. Many people believe that this happens at Cape Point, where dramatic cliffs and marked differences in the ocean colour seem to indicate geographic significance. In fact the meeting of oceans happens here, at the Southernmost tip of Africa in far less spectacular style.
