Directions to Kayak Cape Town, Simon's Town
Due to roadworks the best route from Cape Town is via the M3, M64, M6 route (Ou Kaapse Weg), NOT via Muizenberg and Fish Hoek on the coast road.
BY CAR: Take the M3 motorway, also called The Blue Route, to its end and turn right. About 2km further on at the second traffic light turn left up the mountain on Ou Kaapse Weg. This 12km long mountain pass road has wonderful views through Silvermine and winds down to Sun Valley. Keep straight at the traffic lights and over another hill until you reach a set of traffic lights at a T-junctionby the sea in Glencairn. Turn right and Simon's Town is 5kms away. It's a 60 to 70 minute drive from the centre of town.
If you have GPS use destination Wharf Street, (but make sure you don't go to Wharf St in Cape Town).
Your GPS will also try send you via Muizenberg - ignore it and use our directions above until you get to Glencairn, and then follow the GPS.
