Walks and hikes in Simon’s Town

Don’t miss out on a stroll along the historic lanes and steps of the town which are tucked away just behind the main street. Wonderful old buildings and great views.


Here are a couple SHORT walks:

1) The Waterfall
Start at the Shell Petrol Station in town. Walk up the steps to the left of the garage. Follow the steep roads up the hill looking for the “skilift” pylons which will lead you to Barnard Street. The path to the waterfall begins where the road ends and it is a flattish easy path.

This is an easy walk suitable for the whole family and can be completed from Mariner Guesthouse within an hour. Ask us to prepare a picnic basket and enjoy the views of False Bay!


2) Just Nuisance Grave
The grave of our famous dog is at the top of the hill above Simon’s Town and while it is a tough climb up the steps to the top, the view is well worth it. The mountain steps begin on Barnard Street and lead up to the Navy Signals area where the grave is located.
