  • Short Walks in Simons Town

    • The Waterfall. Start at the Shell Petrol Station in town. Walk up the steps to the left of the garage. Follow the steep roads up the hill looking for the ‘ski lift’ pylons which will lead you to Barnard Street. The path to the waterfall begins where the road ends, and it is a flattish easy path. It should take no more than 20 minutes to get from the start to the waterfall.
    • Just Nuisance Grave. The grave of our famous dog is at the top of the hill above Simon's Town, and while it is a tough climb up the steps to the top, the view is well worth it. The mountain steps begin on Barnard Street and lead up to the Navy Signals area where the grave is located.
  • Visit Cape Point. Take a drive away from Simon’s Town, and head towards the tip of Africa, where the Indian and Atlantic Oceans meet. This is truly a breath taking experience for the whole family. Cape Point has been declared a Natural World Heritage Site. Restaurant, shop, funicular, hiking, bird watching, and many other activities. Tel: +27 (0)21 780 9010 Email: info@capepoint.co.za
