Geocache Description:

Agulhas is the southern most point of Africa. Deserving of an epic Geocache! I hid a Geocache here on 21 April 2001. Since then it has been logged 1,361 times as of 22 Dec 2019. I revisited it today after nearly 19 years. I've updated the photos and have archived the original post in the description below. Enjoy! PS: Hint has been updated.

The southern most tip of Africa.

On the Western Cape's south coast there are coastal towns like Hermanus, Gansbaai, Struisbaai and Arniston.
Additional Hints (Encrypt)

From Cape Town, take the N2 towards Caledon. At Caledon, leave the national road and drive towards Bredasdorp. At Bredasdorp take the road to Struisbaai and Cape Agulhas.

The Caledon exit is at:

S 34 degrees 13.653, E 019 degrees 25.741

Park at the Cape Agulhas lighthouse parking terrain at:

S 34 degrees 49.749, E 020 degrees 00.568

There is a dustbin at:

S 34 degrees 49.935, E 020 degrees 00.218

The cache is 25 meters south of the dustbin.

At the waypoint is a rocky outcrop. On the right of it (when looking at the sea) is an opening. The cache is placed in the opening and covered by many small rocks.
