Escape to the Eastern Cape!

A beautiful beach is located a few hundred meters from the cottages.  In one direction the beach stretches for approximately 2km with stunning sand dunes, great fun for sand-boarding.  In the other direction is a 1km stretch of rocks which is a popular spot for fishermen to cast their lines from.  The lagoon is located about 50m from the cottages. This can be used for swimming, boating, canoeing and fishing.  Bring your walking shoes as there are plenty of short hikes to be done around the resort with wonderful views.  If you love bird-watching then you have come to the right place so make sure you pack your binoculars.
