Simons Town travel guide

Simons Town is a small seaside village with Victorian charm, as well as the location of the South African Navy's main base. These two different faces of Simons Town both add to its appeal in different ways - and add to the picture the fact that a large penguin colony lives on some of the beaches along this stretch of coast  and you won't be surprised to learn that it is a popular holiday destination, not far from the renowned Cape Point Nature Reserve.

There is plenty to see, do and experience during a Simons Town sojourn and we have a list of activities and must-sees submitted by one of our Simons Town Guest Houses, Albatross House.

 

Simons Town Highlights

  • Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope - The entrance is 12 Km from our house. Spend a full or half a day to enjoy the 8500 plant species (Fynbos) that grow here and nowhere else on earth. There are also various animal and reptile and bird species to be seen and enjoyed. There are several hiking trails and beaches.
  • Beaches - Relax on one of our beautiful beaches nearby.
  • Golf - Play golf at one of our nearby courses - Simons Town or Clovelly.
  • Museums, Galleries and Shops - Spend half a day enjoying the historical mile in Simon’s Town. See the preserved historic buildings, and visit the Simon’s Town and Naval museums. Enjoy the waterfront with its interesting coffee bars, restaurants and shops. The Toy Museum is a great little gem loved by adults and children alike.
  • Offshore bird watching -. Take a boat 35 miles south of Cape Point to spend a day viewing the Albatrosses.
  • Penguins - Visit the 4000 strong African Penguin Colony by foot, or rent a kayak and visit them from the sea side. Swim with the penguins (if the weather is warm) at Boulders Beach.
  • SA Navy Tour - Take a boat ride around Simon’s Bay and hear and see the history of Simon's Town and the South African Navy.    
  • Seal Island - Take a 2 hour boat ride out to Seal Island where you can see 75000 Cape Fur Seals, great white sharks, whales and dolphins.
  • Whale watching -  See the Southern Right whales from August to end November when they come here to calve. View them from ashore or by boat.
