Little Boggoms Bay, or Boggomsbaai as it is known, is one of several small seaside villages that fall within the Fransmanshoek Conservancy, on the Garden Route. It lies just south of Mossel Bay, close to the mouth of the Gouritz River.

The small village is proud of the long strip of golden beach that stretches for miles along which one can walk for hours without coming across another person, and the access to bird life, particularly oyster catchers, is notable.

This stretch of coastline features on the Oyster Catcher trail, a popular five day slackpacker trail that needs booking months in advance, for it is highly regarded around the world for its coastal views and biodiversity.

The drive into Boggomsbaai is rather like a trip down memory lane. Not many of the homes have changed here since the '70s and those that are newly built do not, thankfully, conform to the double-storey mansion prescribed along other reaches of the coast in South Africa.

Close to the parking at the beach are a number of Cape-style thatch cottages that add a distinct flair to the view, and the wooden walkway down to the beach has been carefully installed to protect the sand dunes.

The residents of Boggomsbaai take their environment seriously. They protect indigenous plants and trees, and the little buck, hares, owls, tortoises and francolin that make the town their home. For this reason no-one drives over the speed limit of 40 kilometres an hour, and outside lights are off at night.

Down on the beach the sands are devoid of litter, and vehicles are supposed to stay off the sand. If you happen here between July and November, you can spot the southern right whale just offshore.

Mossel Bay and Oudtshoorn are close enough for day trips, but hours on Boggomsbaai's beautiful beach are entertainment enough for the family.
