Simon’s Town is a real-life destination that comes to mind when you think of “idyllic beach town”. It’s slower paced than the nearby Cape Town but dripping with eclectic coffee shops, local artisans, fabulous vintage shopping spaces of oddities and curios alike. As you drive in you are greeted by colourful shops and you can’t help but want to ditch the car and grab a bicycle!

Simon’s Town boasts an impressive history connected to the South African Navy and the African Penguin. It also has a local 4-legged legend named Just Nuisance that encapsulates the nostalgia of the sea-folk of the town and the interesting animals alike, he even has his own wine! On top of this, Simon’s Town hosts fantastic surfing spots and real local “fish ‘n chips” shops that you must visit on your pass through.

If you are looking to stay with the pace of the town and go through it slower than just a day trip, we would seriously recommend staying at the picturesque Quayside Hotel. Not only are you right in the centre of this coastal gem, but they offer views of the harbour that painters would swoon for. They are also right by popular local eateries as well as more upscale restaurants so you would just need to change up your shoes from the day at the beach and you will be ready to go.

This hotel knows exactly how to treat their guests like royalty, as we experienced during our #EndlessSummerDays shoot, but still maintains that sense of comfort you crave when you are looking for a home away from home. The staff are so accommodating you can’t help but slip into holiday bliss when in their care.

Let the good times keep rolling in, just like the tides- right outside your window. We loved our day spent in this very special destination.
