BAY - GUEST HOUSES
is a fishing village on the coast of False Bay, South Africa and is now
a suburb of greater Cape Town. It lies in a beautiful setting, wedged between
the ocean and sharply rising mountainous heights that are buttressed by
crags of grey sandstone. A literal translation from the Dutch/Afrikaans
name "Kalkbaai" is "Lime Bay". The Bible Institute of South Africa
is located here. The railway from the central business district of Cape
Town to Simon's Town passes through Kalk Bay and in some places the line
is only metres from the water's edge.
map of Kalk Bay
famous caves (with names such as 'Ronan's Well', after the Walter Scott
novel St. Ronan's Well, and 'Free Drinks Saloon') are located in the mountains
above the village. They are of importance to spaeleologists because they
have formed in sandstone. Large cave systems are not often found in this
type of chemically unreactive rock. Kalk bay is also home to the famous
surf spot named "Kalk Bay Reef" it is known for its heavy barrels, and
shallow reef. it is best surfed on a big South East swell and north west
wind, in smaller swells low tide makes for better barrels.
Leave yourself time to wander
around the second-hand shops, see the craft stores and art galleries, and
the old china shops reminiscent of Aladdin's cave. Whilst there, take a
walk down to the colourful harbour, where fish can be bought straight from
the small fishing boats, and you may be lucky to see a seal alongside,
hoping for a titbit. Then stop to refresh yourself at a quaint cafe, or
lunch at one of the many good restaurants.

Town is a village and a naval base in South Africa, near Cape Town.
It is located on the shores of False Bay, on the eastern side of the Cape
Peninsula. For more than two centuries it has been an important naval base
and harbour (first for the Royal Navy and now the South African Navy).
False Bay is located to the southeast of Cape Town but to the west of Cape
Agulhas and Simon's Town is consequently located roughly on the border
between the Atlantic and the Indian oceans. The town is named after Simon
van der Stel, an early governor of the Cape Colony.
The land rises steeply from
near the water's edge and the picturesque village is boxed in along the
shoreline by the heights above. The small harbour itself is not a particularly
good natural harbour and is protected from swells by a breakwater that
was built with thousands of huge blocks of sandstone quarried out of the
face of the mountain above. Simon's Town is now in effect a suburb of greater
Cape Town. It is the terminus of a railway line that runs south from the
central business district of Cape Town.
In places the railway line
hugs the steep eastern shore of False Bay quite spectacularly and in bad
weather foam from some heavy swells will fly up and wet the trains!
One of the best beaches on the Cape Peninsula, Boulders Beach, is located
a few kilometres to the south of Simon's Town.
map of Simon's Town
secluded coves with white sandy beaches and calm, safe, warm, shallow waters
are interspersed between huge rounded boulders of Cape granite that form
low cliffs and small caves. There has been a colony of African penguins
at Boulders Beach since 1985. There is no record of the birds having lived
here prior to that date, so their decision to settle in an area already
well-utilized by humans is remarkable. There are only three penguin populations
on the mainland in southern Africa. (The others are on islands).
