Is Simons Town safe?

Me my partner and child are planning in visiting SimonsTown next year in May/June and wondered if its safe in the area?

I have read a lot that there is a lot of crime and special care should be taken.

We were looking to stay at blue mountain bay appartment which is down a quiet road.

Mant thanks

Have visited Simon's Town a few times , and stayed for 3 days recently.

It is as safe as you would find anywhere else in the world, just be careful and have common sense when out and about.

I walked by myself throughout the area during day and evening, never had any worries.

It is a big SA naval port, so there is a military presence which tends to make the town feel safe !

Simons Town is very safe. It has one of the lowest crime rates in the country.
