Simonstown Yacht Bar in False Bay

Boulder’s Beach is just outside of Simon’s Town, and is known as one of Cape Town’s top beach's. It's popularity is due to it being shielded from winds, the water is calm, there are boulders to climb, and particularly that it is home to one of three South African colonies of Jackass Penguins.

I love the public spaces that Muizenberg offers from the beaches (with warmer water), St James Promenade (great for a sunrise walk) and the vlei (where my puppy can run free).
