The easygoing village of Scarborough lies on the northern side of Cape Point Nature Reserve in the Table Mountain National Park. Just 11 km from Kommetjie, it is one of few far-flung suburbs of Cape Town where you can escape from the city and crowds.
Scarborough proudly asserts itself as a ‘conservation village’ although it’s pretty much an assortment of large modern houses and rustic beach homes spilling down mountain slopes to the beach and rocky coastline.
This nature-lover’s and botanists haven is surrounded by a rich selection of coastal fynbos and offers some lovely walks along the coastal and mountain trails. The sunsets are awesome.
Surfing, body boarding, kite surfing, kayaking and windsurfing conditions are excellent. Some of the best spots on the Peninsula for fishing and diving for crayfish can be found along this shore.
There are two restaurants within the village, the Camel Rock and the Hub Café and Greenshop, but it’s not far from Kommetjie, Inhoff’s Gift, Noordhoek, Simon’s Town and Fish Hoek. The pretty Cape Farmhouse Restaurant and a few lovely gift shops are within 3km in the direction of Cape Point.
