Things to do
For most visitors the coastline of False Bay is love at first sight, but even at a second glance there is much to discover. Perched between the ocean and pristine mountains lie some of the Cape’s oldest settlements. Hidden in cobblestone alleys or tucked into colonial buildings cafés, quaint restaurants, antique shops and art galleries invite you to mellow down and indulge. On the other hand the vibrant marine life, friendly beaches and rugged mountains provide more than enough entertainment are some of the best Simon’s Town attractions for active travellers and nature lovers. Among all this seaside bliss it is easy to forget that a drive of only 30 minutes will take you into the bustle of Cape Town’s city bowl.

Simon’s Town Activities
The Southern Peninsula’s most famous attraction is the Cape Point Nature Reserve. The most south-westerly point of Africa offers dramatic view from the lighthouse, pristine beaches, epic hiking and the unrivalled diversity of the Cape Floristic Kingdom.
Another firm favourite is the penguin colony at Boulders Beach. The comical flightless birds are a bit clumsy on land, but turn into black darts as soon as they break the water surface. Stroll along the wooden walk ways to see the African penguins breeding and feeding or walk down to pristine Boulders Beach, where you can swim with the penguins.
A variety of boat tours leave from the Simon’s Town waterfront. Whether you are looking for a gentle cruise, some whale watching or even shark tours – you will find it just a short drive or one train station away from Moonglow. Just enquire at reception of the Simon’s Town tourism office.
