Guests staying in Simons Town should take a walk to the nearby Boulders Beach where over a thousand penguins live in the Penguin Colony. This Penguin Colony in Cape Town started by the penguins themselves. It is unique in that they have voluntarily inhabited suburbia and a public bathing space. A ten-minute drive takes guests to the world famous Cape Point Nature Reserve with the Cape of Good Hope and its most south-westerly point of Africa from where one of the highest sea cliffs in the world of 249m above sea level may be admired.

The seaside village was home to the Royal Navy and in 1957 was handed over to the South African Navy. In 1883 the town was declared and a municipality and town have kept is Victorian look.
