What you'll do

I will collect you from Simonstown train station from where we will go to Seaforth Beach. Here you will see a small penguin colony. Should you wish, you can swim here. After an hour, we will proceed to Mineral World just outside Simonstown where you can either buy a collection bag and collect semi-precious stones from the large gem covered area within the complex or explore the fascinating shop where you can buy anything from a large amethyst geode to the smallest ammonite fossil. There is also an option to play cave golf with many surprises along the way.
