The area at the tip of the Cape of Good Hope, about an hour's drive South from downtown Cape Town. This is the point, the rocky end of the Cape peninsula where the Atlantic and Indian ocean currents meet. These are often refered to as the warm Indian and the cold Atlantic, but the Indian ocean in the Cape is warm only by comparison to the Atlantic ocean.

The area is a nature reserve. The wildlife is mostly ostriches, Zebra, Buck and Baboons. Penguins nest nearby at boulders beach. Be careful of the baboons (see the writeup there as to why). The vegetation is the distinctive cape Fynbos. It's quite a scenic area, with dramatic rocky outcrops and small beaches. Not a good place to swim though.
