Simon’s Town is a small town with a big heart. We have everything; mountains, beaches, a waterfall, astonishing views, friendly people, a moderate climate, spectacular sunrises and sometimes we even have sunsets too!
Simon’s Town is a truly special destination, from the picturesque historic buildings that line St Georges Street, to the naval legacy and our people, past and present. We are passionate about our community neighbourhoods, from the wetlands at Glencairn all the way to the edifice of Castle Rock towards Cape Point.
Aside from the beauty of our natural surroundings, we provide world class hospitality and a range of accommodation to suit every need. We boast an array of hotels, established high-end guesthouses, quaint B&B’s and self-catering accommodation. With activities such as water bikes, kayaking, boat trips, shark cage diving, dive schools, the latest addition of scooters for hire, a Ghost Walk, wine tastings, special interest talks, art exhibitions and various other bigger events, you will never need to worry about having enough to do.
Harbour Bay Mall, Simon’s Town is home to a medical centre situated next to popular retail outlets while in the hub of the village itself, you’ll find many restaurants and coffee shops, not to mention a patisserie that wouldn’t be out of place in Paris. Our welcoming shops invite you to browse their niche products and take advantage of services that you won’t find anywhere else.
Take a day to explore the yacht club, country club, museums, some of the oldest churches in the country and a town square that is the heart of the village. Add all this to the wide skillset of the businesspeople and entrepreneurs who live and work here and you have a winning formula for a perfectly balanced lifestyle.
