More info about Glencairn

The False Bay coast of Cape Town is one of the city’s most breathtaking and picturesque locations boasting scintillating ocean views and a laidback tranquil way of life that is certainly the envy of many Capetonians and other South Africans. While the seaside enclaves of Simons Town and Fish Hoek are the main destinations along this coast, the smaller hamlet of Glencairn is also a terrific location and offers visitors and residents a prime spot along the ocean, beautiful views, and a high quality of life.

Located between Simons Town and Fish Hoek in a junction where the M4 and M6 routes intersect, Glencairn is a terrific mountainous village that is actually a wetland conservation area. This majestic piece of Mother Nature is home to a wide array of birds, mongooses, resident clawless otters, and buck, as well as an impressive assortment of 2250 different types of indigenous flora. Furthermore, Glencairn’s long beach has gentle seas that make it perfect for swimming, snorkelling and sunbathing, and there is also an accompanying tidal pool for added water-related enjoyment; surfing is quite popular in these parts too and is always a popular hub for surfing enthusiasts.

Logistically, Glencairn has an ideal geographical position within Cape Town; as already mentioned it is just mere moments away from all the delights and thrills of nearby Fish Hoek and Simons Town plus it has its own railway station that goes through all the way to the city centre. There is a local shopping centre that has a number of shops and restaurants while other attractions within reasonable distance include the Penguin Colony at Boulders Beach, La Vallee Deli, and the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve.
