This beautiful sleepy seaside village is an hour’s drive from Cape Town and offers a more laid back environment than some of the busier Mother City beachfront suburbs, making it the perfect place to relax and reset body and mind.
Situated between Pringle Bay and Kleinmond, Betty’s Bay is positioned on a narrow strip of land nestled between the Kogelberg Mountains and the Atlantic Ocean, and bordered by freshwater lakes and the Palmiet River. Affectionately known as the heart of the Cape Floral Kingdom with the second-largest plant life diversity, visitors can enjoy dazzling views of the 100,000 ha of unspoiled and isolated land.
Don’t forget to set time aside to visit the Harold Porter Botanical Gardens and the beloved resident penguin colony at Stony Point - a trip to Betty’s Bay wouldn’t be complete without it! Treat yourself to a relaxing day at Silver Sands Beach or Betty’s Bay Beach, sunbathing on warm sands before enjoying a cool dip. For the more adventurous at heart, sandboarding offers a high adrenaline adventure (the highest point reaching a whopping 200 metres!) while the Leopard’s Gorge hiking trail provides a beautiful and moderate trail (6km) ideal for families with children. Alternatively, Rod’s Trail provides an excellent walking trail to the botanical gardens and is suitable for people of all ages, as well as avid bird watchers.
