Slangkop Lighthouse is a lighthouse near the town of Kommetjie, near Cape Town, South Africa.
Construction was due to be completed in 1914 and a brass sign was commissioned for this date, but due to the First World War the lighthouse was not completed until 1919, although definitely in use before that date, e.g. noted in the log of HMS Himalaya on 19 July 1917. The lighthouse was inaugurated on 4 March 1919. The white circular iron tower stands 33m high.

I did not get to go into the light house however I did get to walk along the boardwalk at sunset which was very nice. It was fairly busy with lots of people walking their dogs. There was no issue with any of the dogs and the walkway was relatively clean but I digress. The light house is in great condition on the outside and has some parking if you are going to visit. Its really cheap to go inside and I believe the views would be worth it. A definite must do in Cape Town

Wonderful drive from Cape Point to Kommetjie. We made it to the lighthouse as the sun was setting, so we were able to enjoy the amazing sunset, watching the ship travelling across the sea from the harbour. We also got to the see the lighthouse go on and start it's work for the night. Unfortunately we missed the tours, as they have those during the day in the week. But still a great visit.

Authentic (not plastered with tourist posters etc) Great experience. Loved that the light house keeper didnt tell us all the info at the beginning. We had to really look with seeing eyes and come back down with questions which he answered very knowlegably there. We were active investigators, not passive tourists. So refreshing!

Nice view from top of lighthouse. Cost is 16 rand for adults to climb. Just outside the fenced in area for the lighthouse there's a nice boardwalk that goes along the ocean edge.

Awesome view from the top. The climb is not that bad with levels to catch your breath and look through the small windows. Don't forget to bring cash to gain entrance to the lighthouse itself. There is also a small display of historic things in the building next door of lighthouses and shipwrecks.
