Simon’s Town and Penguin Colony
As we travel along False Bay it opens to the east and north of Cape Point where we visit the well-known naval port of Simon’s Town. The bay is also famous for its great white sharks, which hunt the Cape Fur Seals. It boasts a charming coastal town atmosphere and a vibrant history. We visit the quaint harbour, museums and other interesting spots along the way. One being Boulders Beach, which is one of the only places in the world that you can swim alongside penguins.
Then onto Kalk Bay a quaint suburb packed with antique stores, coffee shops, galleries, second-hand bookstores and restaurants. Whales can be spotted from June to November. Essentially Kalk Bay is a fishing village and has a small lively working harbour, with resident seals and fisherman who happily sell you fresh fish straight off the boat.
