Get in

By plane

Cape Town International Airport

Get around

By train

Train service is only available between Simon's Town and Cape Town and won`t bring you to the the Cape of Good Hope, so the best option is a car. Another option is one of the tours offered everywhere in Cape Town.

By car

  • Take the roads from Cape Town southward, passing Simon's Town and the Boulders to go to the Cape of Good Hope. You will always be on the peninsula, when you are south from Table Mountain.
  • The Cape Peninsula National Park (going to be merged with the Table Mountain National Park) offers visitors some indigenous vegetation and stunning views at Cape Point.


Hout Bay is a little, scenic harbour.




Several cafes and restaurants line the beach in Simon's Town and the other villages of the Cape Peninsula.


Stay safe

Get out

Go to Cape Town, visit the Cape Winelands, drive up to the north along the West Coast or to the east onto the Garden Route.
