This famous landmark is also known as the Cape of Storms, named by the brave Portuguese navigators who explored the southern ocean in the 16th century. The early Spice Route around the Cape has evolved into a busy shipping route and rich fishing grounds. It is regarded as the mythical meeting place of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans, although geographically Cape Agulhas is the most southern tip of the African continent.
