Splendid Simons Town Photographs

Send to Kindle

Located on the False Bay coastline of Cape Town, Simons Town is a historical little village, steeped in South African naval history and home to the South African Navy.  St George’s Street (also known as Simons Town’s historical mile) has buildings over 150 years old; among these are museums and the Church of St Francis which is believed to be the oldest Anglican Church in South Africa.

Apart from museums and historical buildings, Simons Town boasts wonderful shops, antique stores and restaurants.  There is so much to do; whether it’s sitting at the pier enjoying fresh fish and chips, booking a sea kayak trip, wandering the historical mile and learning about the world famous dog, Just Nuisance or exploring the cobbled streets off the main road, you will not be bored in Simons Town.
