Mouille Point Area Information

Mouille Point's lighthouse is probably the most famous landmark on the Atlantic Seaboard. Locals use it to navigate by, while tourists love to hire accommodation near it. Stay in Mouille Point and be close to the action of the city and benefit from the sea views.

Mouille Point accommodation consists of low-rise apartment blocks and hotels, mostly taking in the sea views for which they have been built. Modelled on the Rio de Janeiro form of apartment buildings, the area declined in popularity until the recent boom. Now, Mouille Point is one of the most sought-after areas in Cape Town in terms of its proximity to the city and the nearly-complete soccer stadium in Green Point.
