A sleepy little seaside town which is also a naval base about 20-30 minutes drive from Cape Town. Me? Personally? I prefer taking a train to Simon’s Town, it’s such a scenic route. I came across these forgotten photos I took quite a while back. So if you want to go to the beach but want to get away from the pretentious yuppies in Camps Bay then this is the place to come to. Just because it’s a sleepy little town doesn’t mean there is nothing to do here. There’s whale watching, Boulders Beach is home to the African Penguin, yachting, kayaking, boat trips that head off to Robben (Seal) island, shark cage diving or Cape Point.
