Must visit

Review by Elspeth Campbell (London)

We visit every year and its brilliant for rejuvenating.The places we love most are the magical tucked away secrets: Waters Edge beach, a sheltered cove, plunging into the sea, swim along with the penguins and walk the rocks to look for sea anemones in the cracks. Early walk 7am up the Naval steps at Admirals Kloof with wonderful views of Simon's Town harbour and sea ruffled by breeze or wind. Exilirating!

There is no reason why you shouldnt visit Simonstown. There is alot of history in this quaint naval town and certainly alot to see. Boulders and seaforth beach are fantastic to visit as well as the boulders beach reserve where you cna view the penguins up close and maybe even swim with them. The walk along the boardwalk is stunnign with spectacular views to the sea. Not to be missed!!

Great place

Review by James (Cape Town)

Love visiting Boulders beach! The drive to Simons Town is gorgeous, although can be a bit stop start when there are road works. But definitely a place to visit and explore.

You definitely don't want to miss a visit to Simon's Town and in particular Boulders Beach - my most favourite beach in Cape Town!

Its the best place to enjoy nature and pick up a great tan too! You even have the opportunity to get up close to the penguins and its a great place for snorkling as water temperatures are slightly warmer than the Atlantic Seaboard.

We usually head to the 'The Sweetest Thing Patisserie' for breakfast before hitting the beach - they make the best Chocolate and Hazelnut croissant ever and we usually return for lunch too!

The Salty Sea Dog is great for fish 'n' chips and if you are looking for a candlelit intimate dinner head to 'The Meeting Place'.

Simon's Town is a historic town based on the SA Navy, so don't forget to visit some of the many museums located around town.

Love, love, love the penguins. They aren't kidding when they say you can swim with the penguins in Simons Town. The beaches are pretty awesome too. Spent many a fun day at Boulders as a kid, jumping from the boulders into the waters below.

Thoroughly recommend a kayak trip there too. The ocean is so clear on a bright summer's day.

A gorgeous coffe shop / lunch spot is The Meeting Place or drive a little outside of Simons Town to the Black Marlin for their wonderful seafood, or buy some fish & chips (and find a scenic spot) for a budget-friendly alternative.
