Parker Cottage Guesthouse recommends visiting Simonstown



Established by our friend Simon van der Stel (yes, him again!) around 200 years ago, this little town is a very pleasant place to live and watch the world go by, but in a very British kind of way! Far less bohemian and ‘cool’ than Kalk Bay, Simonstown is a conservative little place, perhaps because of the fact that it’s been home to the South African Navy for so long. This is a place to either drive through or get out and wonder about, perhaps taking an ice cream (you deserve another, don’t you?) and watch the ample whales and dolphins in the bay.

Don’t miss: the SA Navy open day, if your visit coincides with this. Full of a huge range of South Africans, young and old, with music, displays of boats, machines and sailors, this is a real treat.
