Activities in the Vicinity
Being only 40 minutes away from Cape Town, we offer the ideal stopover to or from the Garden Route and the last retreat before you hit the buzzing Mother City. The world famous Stellenbosch wine route is only 20 minutes’ drive away which follows onto Franschhoek. Golf courses such as Erinvale and Arabella are also on your doorstep.
Strand, Kogel Bay, Betty’s Bay, Pringle Bay and Kleinmond are all excellent surf spots within a short drive from here.
Kitesurfing & Surfing
The Crystal Pools hiking trail is not even a 20 minute drive from the guest house. This is a popular and easy hike to a series of mountain pools in a kloof. It is unofficially known as Crystal Pools, but it officially forms part of the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve, and the hike is along side the Steenbras river gorge. Beautiful waterfalls are alongside the pools that you can actually jump into.
The penguin colony at Stony Point at Silversands, Betty’s Bay, is only half an hour’s drive from the guesthouse. The most natural environment to see penguins. Arguably much better than Simon’s Town.
Furthermore there is excellent deep sea fishing as Gordon’s Bay has two harbours where charters can be organised from.
