Scarborough

Scarborough is located on the Cape Peninsula Western coastline, South of Cape Town. It is a sea side village which borders the Cape Point Nature Reserve, to it's South. From the hillside above Scarborough there are uninterrupted Atlantic Ocean and sunset views. It backs on to the fynbos covered hillside which forms part of the newly proclaimed Table Mountain reserve, which is a central mountain spine that runs the full length of the peninsula. It is in a peacefully remote country area away from the bustle of Cape Town, but within quick driving distance of the City, and just over the hill from Simon's Town.
