Caroline is from Australia, and wanted a photo shoot with her husband, 3 children, sister-in-law and in-laws. I took a drive to Simons Town before the shoot to find the most suitable beach, and then remembered this charming little beach that is tucked away near Boulders Beach, called Windmill Beach. It was perfect! It was overcast and the light was beautiful and the ocean was calm.
One of my favourite things to do in Simon’s Town is a kayak trip to Boulders penguins. The trip takes 2 hours, and when I did it, the penguins were swimming around the kayaks! The kayaks are very stable, and no experience is necessary. You’ll be hungry after hanging out with the penguins, and Saveur Restaurant has a great contemporary menu for families, and lovely sea views.
