Journey from Kalk Bay to Cape Point
This small fishing town is the perfect place to spend a Saturday or Sunday. There is a main avenue lined with antique stores, cafes and restaurants. Be sure to take a stroll along The Kalk Bay Pier, a place alive with sounds from fisherman and holidaymakers to seals.
Boulder’s Beach is located in Simon’s Town is and is a sandy safe haven for hundreds of African penguins. The beaches adjacent to the penguin colony are popular with sunbathers, while the main beach is the exclusive hangout of a colony of African penguins. You can view the penguins from the beach or explore the network of raised boardwalks that thread through this protected area.
Despite often being misconstrued as the official meeting point of the Atlantic and Indian oceans (that distinction belongs to Cape Agulhas, the southernmost point of Africa is roughly 170km from Cape Town) Cape Point remains a highly popular South African attraction.
A network of walking trails carve through the reserve, which is rich in both marine life and wildlife. While you’re exploring the shipwrecked beaches and mountain paths, watch out for the local baboons, which are prone to snatching food from sea-gazing sightseers. You can climb to the top of Cape Point by waling trail or by taking a cable car.
