Signal Hill overlooks the city of Cape Town. Its summit located at 350 meters of altitude allows us to have a global view on the city of Cape Town. Signal Hill is very famous for its sunsets. Hiking trails lead to the top of the hill, from where you can enjoy a panoramic view of the city and the Bay of Cape Town. Signal Hill is also used as a launch for paragliders.
Signal Hill owes its name to the establishment of a semaphore at the top of the hill: the flags that were hoisted were used to communicate with ships, providing sailors with information on possible dangers, especially regarding weather conditions.
