Garden Route DestinationsLittle Brak, Garden Route
Mainly a resort area, this part of the coast is renowned for having the mildest climate throughout the year and Little Brak River manages to achieve a subtle balance between energetic seaside activities and contemplative quiet to restore the soul that makes it a wonderful place to stay and one that remains relatively unspoilt.
The river teems with fish and is navigable for about 20 kilometres, which makes it a great place for canoeing, boating and fishing, and birdlife in the area is rewarding too, despite the fact that Little Brak River is only some 18 kilometres outside of Mossel Bay - a plus for those wanting to shop.
The local beach, whilst not high on the list of ‘must do’ surf spots is, nonetheless, frequented by surfers. The waters are calm, safe for swimming and uncrowded, and the white sandy beach is also a great spot for rock fishing and whale watching in season.
Little Brak River is an ideal base from which to explore the rest of the Garden Route and the Little Karoo.
