The Western Cape is a hotspot for biological diversity, especialy:
Cape Point Nature Reserve:
This narrow finger of land with its many beautiful valleys, bays and beaches is bound by the cold waters of the Atlantic ocean in the west and the warm waters of False Bay in the east. There are several tours available that will take you to this incredible part of the Cape Peninsula in a way you never imagined.
- Muizenberg is one of the most favorite beaches over all the water is warm, the beach streets for kilometers and the sand is fine. But there very often it is very windy. Colorful beach huts and wooden fences especially put up offer shelter from the wind.
- St.James has got a smaller beach close to the station, which is much more sheltered from the wind by its situation itself.
- Fishhoek and Kalk Bay have got beaches that are mostly preferred by families. In the winter season, whales and dolphins come close to the coast. This especially invites to stroll in the rocks along the coast.
- The water at the Atlantic coast is some degrees colder than at the False Bay. Some beaches are particularly wind-sheltered, others with fine-grained sand or rocky or with particularly flat course, e.g. Bloubergstrand, Camps Bay, Clifton Beaches.
The Steenberg Golf Club (8km away from us) has got an 18 hole championship course designed by Peter Matkovich; a backdrop of vineyards, gardens, forests and mountains provides the setting for this beautiful exclusive course. Peaceful and un crowded secure golfing.
Other excellent Golf Courses are available in the Western Cape are not so far away from us, as the likes of West Lake Golf Club, Royal Cape Golf Club and Atlantic Beach Golf Club.
Wine Farm Tours:
A 45-minute drive from Cape Town brings you to this area where splendid mountains form a dramatic backdrop to lush vineyards and gabled Cape Dutch homesteads steeped in history. Come experience the hospitality and beauty of Stellenbosch, Paarl, Wellington, Franschhoek and Pniel.
The diversity of the Winelands will capture every heart. And there is so much more to do....
