Enjoy Simonstown's SPECTACULAR Beaches

If you enjoy being outdoors and are up for a bit of walking, you can easily by foot go to 5 or 6 lovely beaches in Simonstown, all in easy walking distances from each other.  I will suggest starting from where the studios or apartments are located. 

The first beach you can visit is Fisherman's beach, a truly amazing beach where the water turns AQUA blue on a beautiful day.  Beautiful white sand and big rocks gives you the ideal place for a safe swimming area for families.  This beach was created in the last century by trek-netters displaced from the beaches lost to the SA Navy harbour, this is a popular swimming beach (scenicsouth.co.za).

Going towards Simonstown, the next beach is Frank's Beach, named after Frank Muller.  This beach is pretty much hidden and not always seen from the roadside.  Great little treasure if you want a private beach!

The next beach is Windmill Beach, also hidden in a way, as the access to the beach is from behind the Simonstown Golf Course.  A small, relatively sheltered, beach which is popular with families. It is named after the original windmill erected in the early years of the last century to pump fresh water from a small stream to the houses at Boulders.  In our opinion, this is one of the most beautiful beaches, with it's 2 bays giving you the perfect and safe swimming environment.

The most famous beach in Simonstown is definately Boulders Beach, the beach where the Penguin Colony lives, and the most beautiful beach in Simonstown, in our opinion.  This is small sheltered beach, inside the Boulders Penguin Park, where families can play on the beach and paddle and swim with penguins. The nearby Foxy Beach is reserved for penguins. An entrance fee is charged by the National Park to help maintain the area for the penguins.  If there is a beach to visit, this would be it!

Seaforth Beach is the next large beach to visit, even though there are other beautiful beaches between Boulders and Seaforth.  Seaforth beach is a little more commercial in terms of having a restaurant and market close by to keep you busy, furthermore, being close to town, so it easy to walk into Simonstown centre for whatever need, whereas the previous beaches mentioned range from 0.75km to 2.5km from Simonstown centre.  This is a sheltered beach, backed by grassy lawns and is popular with families. In the nineteenth century, Seaforth had been used as a small boat based whaling station.

Finally, one the other side of Simonstown (towards Fish Hoek), you will find Long BeachThis is a long strip of white sand on the sea side of the railway line at Simon’s Town Station. It is popular for picnics, swimming and kayaking and diving though wind can be a problem.
