The Simon’s Town Waterfront Centre has all the sophistication that you can hope for, while still maintaining the town’s seaside atmosphere. A variety of shops, selling a range of products, are within easy reach of the hotel and the town boasts a wide choice of excellent restaurants. Spend some time absorbing Simon’s Town’s history in the four museums in the area and for real relaxation, frequent one of the local health spas.
Treat the little ones to a fun day at Mineral World or “Scratch Patch” where they can play in the pools of semi-precious gemstones and take some home as souvenirs.
Visit the wetlands of Noordhoek or the World of Birds in Hout Bay or stop off at Imhoff Farm for a camel ride and a visit to the snake park.
A must do is a stop off to see the statue of ‘Just Nuisance’ (in Jubilee Square); the only dog to ever have been enlisted into the Royal Navy. He was a well-loved dog amongst his seamen, taking the opportunity to board trains with his peers and taking up duty to ‘serve’ at sea.
