    Renowned for excellent swimming, surfing, wind surfing and fishing, Scarborough's peaceful village and conservation minded atmosphere presents a refreshing antidote to the nearby Cape Town bustle. Taking your family and dogs for a leisurely walk on Scarborough's beautiful long sandy beaches will relieve some stress. Forty minutes from the Waterfront, and ten minutes from Simon's Town (with its many restaurants, fine swimming beaches and naval bustle) or Fishhoek (there's a fine swimming beach, movies and shopping), as well as Boulders Beach (home of the African Penguin) and adjacent to Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve. Scarborough is within easy travelling distance of all the Cape's major attractions. Other draw cards include the finest whale, dolphin and bird watching while sporting enthusiasts can enjoy all sporting codes from golf (Clovelly and Simon's Town) to deep sea angling nearby. There are two restaurants, the Camel Rock Restaurant is within walking distance and the Cape Farmhouse Restaurant is a five minute ride away. Other good restaurants, spectacular sightseeing and shopping/entertainment malls are situated within easy reach.
