This historic little maritime town was named after Simon van der Stel in 1687. Naturally, you will find museums preserving the history, such the South African Naval Museum and the Warrior Toy Museum. For the more adventurous, Big Blue Sport Fishing Charters will give you the ultimate experience of deep sea game. However, if you like staying closer to the shore, make your way to Kayak Cape Town and visit the penguins at Boulder’s Beach by paddling there. Simon’s Town Boat Company will have you exploring ocean caves and leave you in awe of the spectacular views of Cape Point from offshore. Shark cage diving is on the bucket list of many; visit Apex Shark Expeditions for a memorable experience. Simon’s Town’s nostalgic “Historic Mile” will lead you along St George’s Street and revealing old buildings, some of which have remained unchanged for more than a century. You cannot visit this beautiful coastal town without indulging in seafood. Bertha’s and Salty Sea Dog will not disappoint!
