Franks Bay Beach, Simon's Town, Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa


Frank's Bay Beach is a small rocky cove situated in Simon's Town. The granite boulders that border the beach protect it from the wind, and the water is often calm enough for ocean kayaking, fishing and snorkelling. The shallow rock pools are perfect for children to splash about in and explore.

Frank's Bay is not far from Boulder's Beach, famous for its penguin colony. There is no designated parking area for Frank's Bay. It is recommended that visitors park opposite Fisherman's Beach, a short walk away.
