This beach has enjoyed international Blue Flag status on more than one occasion, for its excellence in offering pristine and safe beaches as well as water that is the right standard.

The rooms were clean and tidy. Kitchenette was well equipped. The swimming pool was not working and remained covered for the length of stay. The dogs were lovely but now one cleaned up after them for the 4 days that we were there. Apart from that the view and sea air was worth the time spent. Access to Gateways, the beach and all the down town restaurants was very convenient. We will not hesitate to return again as we had a very quite relaxing stay.

I stayed at Crooked Tree Cottage and it was just a fantastic place and experience. It’s a bit pricy by about R100 but it was wonderful.
