Restaurant spot and boat experiences
Dec 2020 • Couples
Location: in central Naval base of Simonstown
Restaurants and boat experiences overlooking two Naval Ships in the harbour.
Historical town.

The town was named after Simon van der Stel. Simon's Bay was made the official winter anchorage for the Dutch East India Company's ships in 1743. Baron G. W. van Imhoff, Governor-General of the Dutch East Indies, who touched at the Cape in the same year, chose a site for a magazine, hospital and barracks at Simonstown.

We stayed at Lord Nelson Hotel close by.
Situated: across the Naval base close to Jubilee square and jetty
history of this Hotel is a special tribute to beginning of time.
Some very special memorabilia items on display.

Lovely
Dec 2019 • Family
Simonstown is a really lovely little town with some superb shops and a nice local daily market. The jetty and marina area is very picturesque with some good local restaurants. We enjoyed our visit, prior to going to Boulders Beach Penguin Colony.

Convenient...

Safe parking available, close to the main street and a little walk to the museums. Lots of flea market attractions. Coffee shops and restaurants and of course the water activities too.

Nice stop on Cape Point trip
Nov 2019
Simon’s town is an attractive small town and marina adjacent to the Penguin colony, en route to Cape point. The marina and setting are attractive and there are restaurants and some pretty average shopping.

Whilst in the town we took a stroll around the square and jetty as well as taking in a bit of the local history by seeing the Just Nuisance statue.

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL SPOT IN SIMONSTOWN
Oct 2019
Just sitting there on a bench and looking at the view is amazing. I never go to Simonstown without going to Jubilee Square and Jetty and spend some time there. It is absolutely beautiful. The view from there is amazing.
