Description

The huge granite boulders above Fresnaye/Bantry Bay and facing the sea and Robben Island.

Approach

Park in Top road in Fresnaye and walk up the tree line. Alternatively park near the kramat on the signal hill road and walk walk towards the Atlantic Ocean then turn left so you're walking towards Lion's Head but heading a little seawards. You will be on a good path. When you walk past the wood and concrete bench, look to the right for a small path which traverses across (aim for the Bluegum trees) to reach the Granite.
