Don’t miss the opportunity to take in the breathtaking views from the top of Table Mountain.

Boulders Beach

Boulders Beach in Simon’s Town is ideal for kids as immense boulders shelter the cove from currents and large waves. It is a rare pleasure to swim with the penguins but do not touch or feed them. They might look cute and cuddly but their beaks are as sharp as razors and if they feel threatened they have no qualms about nipping the odd finger or nose.
