Photograph the Milky Way in Cape Town

The best place in Cape Town to photograph stars and the Milky Way is at the secluded Smitswinkel Bay, a small bay at the bottom of a steep cliff, just before you reach the entrance to Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve. (and what a view!)

At the bottom is one of the prettiest beaches in the secluded bay, granite boulders littering the shoreline, and takes approximately 20-30 minutes along the foot path.

There is no such thing as a street lights at Smitswinkel Bay (why would you, if there are no roads?) which makes it perfect for photographing the stars and Milky Way.
