Simon's Town Reviews
The buzz and quaintness.
It really is a must see town, there is a scratch patch with the most beautiful stones. Boulders beach is a fantastic spot to relax and enjoy the penguins and plenty of shops to browse, plus a very nice yacht club with plenty of spots to choose from to grab something to eat.
Everything is central.
The quiet tranquility :-)
The town itself is amazing, historical and quaint. The view of the bay and the beach were breathtaking.
All the wonderful things to see and do!! We stayed at Boulders Beach Lodge where, from the deck, we saw penguins walking in the car park!! Really awesome stuff!!! Boulders Penguin Colony is something else. Do yourself a favour and get there!
Then there's the Jubilee Square Craft Market and the Harbour (we liked Fran's Place and her story), we visited the Toy Museum, danced to live music at 2 and 6 Pence, enjoyed the elegance of the Lord Nelson Inn where we had pizza and watched the Champions League final, spent a laid back afternoon sitting at the Black Marlin having wine and oysters and just watching the boats down below and then views, views and more views!! Absolutely breathtaking!
We'll be coming back to camp at Smitswinkel Bay (bucket list stuff!) and at another time at Miller's Point, can't wait!!!
P.S. Was surprised and sad to see that the British Hotel is closed. I really wanted to have a sort of tour of the inside if they'd have allowed me. I would appreciate it if you could let me know what is happening there?
The olde world character, views, restaurants, the penguins, Cape Point, the beaches, paddle skiing, scuba diving, golf, hikes, coffee shops, horse rides on Long Beach, wine tasting at Cape Point Vineyards, museums and boat trips.
Beautiful in Simon's Town.
A very quaint and tranquil town, truly lovely.
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.
