Smitswinkel Bay Beach
About Smitswinkel Bay Beach
Just past Simon’s Town and right next to Cape Point Nature Reserve lies Smitswinkel Bay, accessible only by foot or a small boat. The 15-minute walk down is well worth the effort for the sweeping ocean and mountain views alone.
The bay is popular for snorkeling, diving, spearfishing and trek netting. The beach and some of the rock pools are good for swimming. It’s an awesome beach picnic spot but you need to be self sufficient and prepared to lug everything back up the hill. There are no amenities or lifeguards.
