Charming story and nice statue. Worth stopping off for 2 minutes to take a photo. But I wouldn’t recommend making a diversion.

The background to the story of this dog, loved by local sailors is told on the wall of Bertha's Restaurant in the arcade next to it. Part of the interesting local history of this lovely little town.

Dogs are great, and if you like them, you'll be inspired by the story of the sailor Just Nuisance. Look it up!

I have visited the statue many times, but didn't know the complete history is on a board on the wall of the little shopping centre next to the statue. It was fascinating reading.

The actual grave, high up on the mountain above Simons Town is maintained by former naval graduates of HMS Ganges in Suffolk, UK.

Love his statue and the history that surrounds him. The statue is beautifully done in honour of this very special dog. What a story! It is so worth stopping to see him but also do yourself a favour and read up about this wonderful animal. The vendors around the area are a bit annoying but a firm 'no' seems to make them back away.

The Just Nuisance story is incredible, unfortunately you cant really explore the detailed history without a host of people sellign their wares, from beaded items, to African curios to fresh fruit, you really have to learn to say 'NO' it does break from the overall enjoyment at the time as these sellers are very in your face.

This pert little statue of Just Nuisance, the wartime dog who loved a pint, is a worthwhile place to pause in the harbour-facing park in Simon's Town. Not a major attraction for sure, but worth a photo and a smile.

We parked here to walk the street shops of Simons town. It's a quaint area and worth the stop! "I love waffles" is highly recommended but SHARE a dessert. Postoffice on bottom of two story building here to drop off a postcard to home.

This Grand Danois is still widely know over Africa and other parts of the world. The life of this dog was very special - and yes, there is a lovely story about this dog.
He, Just Nuisance became the first and only canine Royal Navy member in history!
What was the reason? - Well, you have to google it - and you will find a lovely story, why this dog ,in 1939, only two years old enjoyed the Royal Navy for the rest of his live.

- Simon’s Town has a rich naval history, which stretches back more than two hundred years. Although now home to the South African Navy, in those days the Naval Base fell under the command of the British rule and the Royal Navy and was the largest naval base on the entire African continent.
(we have been there some years ago)
