The wreck of the Meisho Maru in Cape Agulhas.

Stunning photo and story from Cathy Van Eeden
One can still see the remains of the Japanese fishing vessel that ran aground in 1982. This part of the coast is notoriously dangerous and has caused many a ship to settle in its final resting place. Due to this dangerous coastline Agulhas is home to the third oldest lighthouse built and the second oldest lighthouse still in operation. This spot is famous for its fabulous sunsets and with the backdrop of the wreck it is a visitors and photographers favorite spot. A magical place to have a picnic and sundowners.
