It is also the site of the freshest fish and chips in Cape Town.
    • Explore this jaw-dropping hand-crafted scenic drive with 114 curves. An architectural feat built between 1915 and 1922. Curved along the foot of the Western Mountains of the Cape Peninsula with the Atlantic Ocean on the other side. Experiences like this are not common in the world, with the lush green fynbos vegetation covering the foot of the mountain and the environs. Dotted with several photos stops where you can take great photos either as an individual, couple or group photo. Explore the geological structures which make up the mountain formation comprised of flat, sedimentary rocks on top and the Cape Granite on the base. The two formations meet a geological unconformity that is world-famous among earth scientists.
    • Visit this world-famous National Park - which is the windiest place in South Africa. It is also the mythical meeting point of the two oceans. Breathe in as much as you can, as this is one of the very few places in the world declared to have the freshest air. Hence the setting up of the Global Watch Research Station. This is also the site of one of the oldest lighthouses in South Africa, with a strength of about 2 million candle power. Take a hike up to the top, where from you can take a flight of 62 steps to this famous lighthouse. Optionally you can take a 3-minute ride of the funicular to the top. This is also the site of a radar station, which was built to detect the German U-boats during the Second World War.

This is home to more than 270 bird species and some attractive wildlife. You can see Zebras, Antelopes, Wild Beasts and the notorious Chacma Baboons, among others. Wild Ostriches are not to be missed as the Rock Hyrax or the Dassy. Marine life is not to be left behind as dozens of seals are always pausing for a photo shoot on the boulders nearby. This location is one of the most photographed in Africa because of its amazing views and surroundings. Lookout for some of the largest seaweed in the world. Take a healthy walk to the cliff top, where you can see the unspoiled Daiz beach. This is an ideal place for group photos, a selfie or as a loving couple. The rough seas make for a sensational photo backdrop with the continuous splashing waves on the boulders. And the fine mist cools off the day before you head to the next stop, the Boulders beach - Penguins.
    • Explore one of the oldest settlements in South Africa, established in 1652. Take a walk along the main road, now a national heritage with its Dutch colonial architecture. There are old coffee shops, clothing shops and those specializing in art and craft. This is home to the South African Navy; hence you can see warships in the waters nearby, and old Dutch cannons mounted ready for battle. Take a walk on the jetty. Get up close to the many fishing boats, as this is home to the second-biggest fishing industry in Cape Town. We have several museums here which provide information since the arrival of the Dutch to post-independent South Africa. Lookout for the statue of the dog-able seamen Just Nuisance- the only dog to be formally listed in the Royal Navy. In winter, whales can be seen in the waters around Simon's Town.
    • Come face to face with these adorable flightless birds. Take a walk on the wooden boardwalk to Foxy beach, where the concentration of the penguin colony is awaiting you. Listen to these penguins as they bray like donkeys. Here you must take out your best camera as the Penguins are always pausing for great pictures. An ideal location for a selfie or a group photo with the background of the Jack-ass penguins. Learn the history of these penguins since 1982, when they were discovered.
