Simons Town

About Whale Watching from Boulders to Smitswinkelbaai

Although Simonís Town is small in size, one of its biggest attractions still remains a trip to Boulders Beach. Boulders Beach is situated at the end of Simonís Town between Fish Hoek and Cape Point.

A small entrance fee helps towards the preservation of the penguins and as a result, you are able to come within hands reach of then (careful they do bite), and spend the day with them swimming and enjoying the sun.

Further down past Simonís Town is Smitswinkelbaai, and within it a small little beach. A popular attraction for snorkelling and diving this beach can only be accessed via foot and is totally secluded. Other than a handful of houses it is surrounded by the mountain that leads into Cape Point Nature Reserve, and for those on a quest to sight whales, hiking trails up the nature reserve will give you the best viewing point so have your binoculars ready!
