Day 2 - Cape Town


Start your day with a selection of breakfast goodies at La Cuccina before heading back over Chapmans Peak Drive to Simonstown. It might be a good idea to take the long way around via Cape Point fior views of Kommetjie, Misty Cliffs, and Cape Point. Remember to look out for kitesurfers on Scarborough beach if its windy. Paddler's will take you on a two and a half hour paddle (10 years old and up) from Simonstown harbour to the penguins at Boulder Beach and back. Enjoy a relaxing lunch after at Southern Right, take a walk in the mountains above Kalk Bay, and head on to Kalkys for the best fish and chips around.
