Betty's Bay is a quiet town, ideally suited to those who prefer outdoor living, situated on the southern coast of Africa, in South Africa & the province of the Western Cape. The region is The Overberg and the area Hangklip / Kleinmond which is roughly half way between Cape Town & Hermanus.
There are lovely long silver sandy beaches, as well as a selection of small private beaches with rocks and rock pools surrounding them. These are safe and especially suited to children. Even in the busy season, the beaches are not heavily populated.
Close by are the attractions of the Stony Point land-based Penguin Colony, Harold Porter National Botanical Garden & the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve. At Stony Point, the boardwalk makes penguin viewing a special treat. Of course, there are many other bird species to be viewed in the area. The walks, hikes, picnic spots and cycle routes in the Harold Porter Gardens and Kogelberg Reserve are spectacular. These wilderness areas form the central core of the Cape Floral Kingdom and are home to a huge range of flora & fauna species. The Palmiet River is also a favorite for swimming or canoeing.
The Arabella & Kleinmond Golf Courses are 20 & 10 minutes drive.
Betty's Bay, nestled between mountain & ocean, is definitely a worthwhile holiday destination and a great place to get away from it all. Our self catering holiday homes provide the perfect places to stay.
