More info about Elands Bay
Elands Bay is a town situated about two and a half hours drive north of Cape Town. This quiet fishing village was named a provincial heritage site as it is well known for its caves, which are filled with historic rock paintings. The Baboon Point cliffs are home to Bobbejaansberg, where excavations show that this area was inhabited by humans more than 15 000 years ago. Elands Bay is also a great spot for surfing and fishing, taking you far away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

About Guest Houses
For a more down to earth experience there are guest houses. Less expensive than hotels, they offer a more homey environment, as well as more privacy. Converted from a private house it’s a much gentler environment and for those with furry friends, there are also pet friendly options. They are usually well situated with shops and places of interest nearby. Being so small it offers a much more personal and intimate attention to it’s upkeep, leaving you with a more polished and homely experience.
