Cape Whale Coast Reviews
Excellent views, loads of places to eat, and great accommodation.
Many Wine Farms to visit - Too much for one day. There is a Space Weather Station - SA "NASA"... Very interesting to do tour (but not available on week-ends, only on Wednesdays. Need to make contact ahead of time, but Volmoed Retreat is worth a visit for Holy Eucharist on Thursdays (or staying over as well)
Beautiful mountains and the monkeys.
Beautiful memories were made.
One of the most beautiful coastlines in the world as far as I have seen to this point.
Sea side trips, shopping and braai.
More info about Cape Whale Coast
South Africa’s Whale Coast could be considered as the area stretching from Betty’s Bay in the north to Gansbaai in the south on this section of the Western Cape Province coastline known as the Overberg (over the mountain). Both Betty’s Bay and Walker Bay are marine protected areas renowned for prime land-based whale watching. Southern Right, Bryde’s and Humpback whales congregate in the bays mostly during calving season, however, whales are generally spotted here throughout the year.
Towns along the whale coast are positioned up against high coastal mountains mostly incorporated into nature reserves. One, the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve, is recognised by UNESCO as an ecosystem of international importance.
The Whale Coast is much more than whale watching, the area has a number of attractions in this most scenic part of the world, ideal for a few days’ layover.

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.
