Time to visit;   Best time of the year to visit our area are our spring (Aug-Oct, Whale season) and autumn (March, April, May) with well-tempered weather, but even our winter (never frost or snow) has frequently a row of beautiful sunny days with blue skies. Summer heat (Nov./Dec. – February) is controlled through the South Easter wind, called the “Cape Doctor”, which keeps the air clear and clean.

Location:    Historical Simon’s Town shelters in stunning False Bay, the ideal place for a holiday. Life happens along one main road, which sets the traveller back in time due to the many buildings which have survived from the 17th and 18th centuries. In spite of that there is much to do and see in and around the village.

Activities around town:   There are several museums of interest: 

1.The well-known Toy museum on main road
2. The Navy museum    
3. Simon’s Town museum, right beside St Francis of Assisi 200 years Anglican Church, the oldest Anglican church in the country 
4.The historical mile around Simon’s Town.

For activities you have many choices: deep sea fishing, kayaking, swimming in lovely clear water across the road  on sandy beaches or secluded little coves. Sail out to trace sharks or dive in a cage to see them ‘ face to face’.  Discover nature in one of the world’s richest regions of flora and fauna. There are hundreds of hiking trails from Table Mountain to Cape Point.

The whales visit from around August to October, and it is great watching them from the balcony or sunroom.

If Golf is your  game, Simon’s Town has a 9 hole course with a great views.

17 restaurants and eateries offer different foods for different tastes and pockets.

If your passion is bird watching there are many species to observe in the Peninsula and the most well -known are the penguins and the ostriches  in and around Simon’s Town. Our “Town-seabird -specialist” takes fans out many sea miles into open waters to find and watch the Albatross birds.
