Agulhas Ocean Art House Description
The AGULHAS OCEAN ART HOUSE, located directly on the Indian Oceans shore, is a little hotel for sophisticated individualists; for travellers who like to be indulged in a classy and modern environment. The house itself is in a modern style with an unmistakable architectural charm, inviting the viewer to an intense and rewarding visual dialogue. Art and nature combine to convey enduring impressions, stimulating the senses and allowing one to forget everyday hustle and bustle. There are beautiful sea views from each of the rooms and mountain views from three of the bedrooms. Every room has its own private balcony. In the upstairs lounge area you can feast your eyes on the beautiful ocean, read a book from the library or watch TV. Downstairs you can relax, listen to classical music from a large CD-Selection or lounge in the beautiful garden area with the mountain right behind you. Agulhas Ocean Art House faces the sea and offers a splendid view of sunrise over the bay of Cape Agulhas and Struisbaai. The rear of the house looks on to a nature reserve and includes a small courtyard which offers an area of sunny calm and pleasant views on blustery days. On the premises is the Art Café. Art Gallery Agulhas Ocean Art House is both, a hotel and contemporary art gallery. Exclusive paintings, photography, sculptures and other art objects carefully selected and created by the internationally acclaimed owners are part of every room.
The southernmost tip of Africa The southernmost tip of the African continent is at Cape L’Agulhas and not at Cape Point as many people believe. The official position of the tip is 34°49’12’’ south and 20°00’12’’ east and is found approximately 1 km west of the Cape L’Agulhas Lighthouse. The tip’s exact location is marked by a simple yet dramatic cairn which was erected in 1986. At the end of the 15th century early Portuguese seafarers christened this tip ‘Cabo das Agulhas’ which means ‘Cape of Needles’ and refers to the needle of the compass which at this point shows no real deviation between north and magnetic north. A truly magic and desolate place, where suddenly one begins to understand the difficulties the early seafarers must have faced. The Cape L’Agulhas Lighthouse is the second-oldest working lighthouse in South Africa and was built in 1848. It is one of only three buildings in South Africa to be inspired by Egyptian architecture. Today it houses a Lighthouse Museum and restaurant. Where the two oceans meet: As determined by the International Hydrographic Organisation, the two mighty Oceans – Indian and Atlantic – meet at the most southern tip of the continent of Africa – Cape L’Agulhas. However, the meeting point of the two ocean currents, the warm Agulhas Current and the cold Benguela Current, is a totally different issue, and must not be confused with the meeting of the Oceans. The sea temperature in summer is a pleasant 20 – 22 degree Celsius, while the winter temperature is not much lower.
