Capetown & The Garden Route - Simon's Town & Southern Peninsula (PDF Chapter)
This is the Simon’s Town & Southern Peninsula chapter from Lonely Planet’s Cape Town & the Garden Route guidebook.
Far from the bustle of the northern end of town, the Southern Peninsula is a world unto itself. Must see places are Muizenberg, Kalk Bay, Simon’s Town and Boulders, home to a colony of penguins. On the Atlantic side of the peninsula is quiet Noordhoek, famous for its wide, sandy beach, and the surfing mecca of Kommetjie.
- snap photos of the colony of African penguins waddling around Boulders
- hike, cycle or just laze on a serene beach at the Cape of Good Hope, a nature reserve covering the rugged tip of the peninsula
- shop in Kalk Bay and enjoy a bite or a drink overlooking its harbour
- restaurants & bars
Coverage includes: Neighbourhood Top Five, Explore Simon’s Town & Southern Peninsula, Local Life, Getting There & Away, Sights, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment, Shopping and Sports & Activities.
