More info about Simon's Town

The picturesque suburb of Simon’s Town is nestled in False Bay, Cape Town. Simon’s Town is significant in terms of its nautical history and is still home to the South African navy. Part of Simon’s Town’s history is the bronze statue of ‘Just Nuisance’ which stands in Jubilee Square. Just Nuisance was a famous Great Dane who was awarded the title of Able Seaman in the navy. 

Simon’s Town has a quaint village feel with many cobbled streets and old cottages. It is superb to visit during the early and late winter months, as it is north facing, getting the warm winter sun.

 

Things to do

Jubilee Square, home to the famous Just Nuisance statue, is also a vibrant area filled with little shops and restaurants. It has beautiful views overlooking the harbour and is a perfect place to take a stroll next to the sea, or sit down, have a coffee and take in the spectacular view. 

It is only natural that such a historical town be filled with fabulous museums. The South African Naval Museum is a museum which showcases Simon’s Town’s rich naval history. This museum is great if you are interested in ships and submarines, their weapons and equipment. The museum is part of the South African Navy and is staffed by naval personnel.

Operating out of Simon’s Town harbour, Big Blue Fishing Charters offers the ultimate experience in deep sea big game, tuna and inshore game and reef fishing. Big Blue Fishing Charters is located close to some of the best fishing grounds in the Cape waters. Fishing can be enjoyed all year round.

If you’re keen on hearing about the rich history of Simon’s Town right from its waters then a cruise aboard the Spirit of Just Nuisance is for you. Take a slow cruise around the bay while enjoying all the historic sights and beautiful scenery. You may spot some birdlife, seals or even a whale.

One of Simon’s Town’s most notable attractions is Boulders Beach, known for its large penguin colony. Boulders is perfect for a leisurely swim between the rocks, family picnics on the beach or strolling on the walkways while observing the penguin life. These African penguins are endangered so make sure you are cautious while in their environment. Other family friendly beaches to visit in the area include Seaforth, Long Beach, Fisherman’s Beach and Windmill Beach.

 

Where to eat

The Black Marlin Restaurant is well known for its delicious seafood. During summer you can enjoy al fresco dining in the garden, or enjoy a fabulous lunch or dinner indoors. From July to December you might even be lucky enough to do some whale watching while enjoying your meal.

For afternoon tea why not try Simon’s Town’s quaint little patisserie, The Sweetest Thing, for truly sumptious cakes, pastries and pies.

The Salty Seadog is casual fish and chips dining at its best. It is a local favourite and offers fabulous views of the harbour as well as freshly prepared calamari, prawns, squid and catch of the day.

Situated just above Boulders Beach, Boulders Beach Lodge and Restaurant offers spectacular views and a menu which is revised every few months, complemented by an extensive wine list. This restaurant is well known for their breakfasts and relaxed atmosphere.

The Sophia Gallery and Tibetan Teahouse, is set in a beautiful old house, offering great vegetarian and vegan food, as well as cakes. The teahouse also has room called the Sanctuary which is used for meditation and events, a shop, and a Spiritual Art Gallery.
