n 1825 Edmund Miller bought this land and created a whaling station here, hence the name Millers Point.The whaling
operations were halted in the 1850’s and for almost 70 years the coast was only used by the occasional fisherman, until
the 1920’s when the Molteno family acquired the land.
Millers Point resort is situated approximately 6 km south of Simon’s Town, in the direction of Cape Point. This is a
fairly small camp terrain, with only 16 sites, and all are electrified. Millers Point boasts with its own private and
very secluded beach, with large green lawns scattered with benches, where one can relax at and absorb the spectacular
views over False Bay.
One must not confuse Millers Point Resort with Millers Point picnic area, which is the next turn of past Millers Point
Resort. The picnic area is another jewel in the Cape Peninsulas coast line, with braai spots and a tidal pool.
From July to November this becomes a popular whale watching spot, where one can watch Southern Right Whales breach quite close to shore.
Millers Point is an easily accessible launching point for wreck diving trips, where numerous boats have been scuttled within 4 km of the launching site, forming artificial reefs.This is also a popular site for water sports such as yachting, sea kayaking, surf skiing and shore entry scuba diving.
Not far from Millers Point is the world famous Boulders African Penguin colony, the historical town of Simon’s Town and Cape Point. In a very small area there is loads to do.
