Bayside Beach House
Backed by a nature reserve and not far from the lagoon and sea, this is a great spot for some time out.
From R44 south: 1.2km from the BP petrol station. From R44 north: 1.3km from Botanical Gardens.
Just 1 hour from Cape Town, this stunning beach house offers views of Betty’s Bay and its passing whales and dolphins.
Get into great surf breaks and the rush of sandboarding down huuuge dunes. Visit the Kogelberg Reserve and Harold Porter Botanical Gardens, hike, rock climb and enjoy dips in mountain rivers.
They have their own swimming pool, free 9-hole putt-putt course and a free (yay!) full-size snooker table.
Top it with a home-cooked meal and a local brew, then sink into a comfy bed and dream of whales…
