Our top recommendations for beach holidays in South Africa
Although not obvious for beach holidays in South Africa, the Garden Lodge overlooks a lovely, quiet, wild beach at Walker Bay. Activities can include beach picnics, riding on the beach, and even guided walks to an archaeological site in a massive local cave.
Camps Bay Retreat
Camps Bay Retreat is set within a short walk of three stunning beaches – Glen Beach, Camps Bay & Clifton. Beside this, it has three outdoor swimming pools, so you are spoilt for choice to create a best beach holiday experience.
Periwinkle Guest Lodge
The Periwinkle is just across the road from the middle of a long stretch of the beach at Plattenberg Bay; it’s a great venue for a beach holiday. The Lodge extends to three levels, and has breathtaking views of the famous Robberg Peninsula, Tsitsikamma Mountains and the sea.
With a great Blue Flag beach and quieter, secluded beaches in and around Hermanus, The Marine is a good base for a beach break in South Africa during the summer months of November to March.
