Simon’s Town is home to the world-famous Boulders Beach Penguin and Nature Reserve with unspoilt, serene beaches and breath-taking scenery, the village of Simon’s Town, just 40 minutes from Cape Town central, is steeped in maritime history, with Victorian-style architecture adding a charming “olde worlde” touch. Being home base to the South African Navy, visitors and residents may view their practise exercises which are carried out daily in the bay.
Spring time, brings another visitor to Simons Town’s shore, with the return of the Southern Right Whales, who seek out the calm False Bay waters for their calving season. Fishing, surfing, diving and swimming are popular sports in the area, there are also bowling greens, a country club with golf course and the yacht club. In the summer, the main attraction is the beaches. False Bay waters are warmer than those found on the Atlantic coast, and bathing is safer due to the lack of undercurrent. Boulders Beach is particularly popular, as it is well sheltered from the South Easterly wind and is home to one of the largest colonies of Jackass Penguins in the world.
