Clovelly, False Bay

Clovelly lies between Fish Hoek and Kalk Bay just as you leave the quaint harbour village and come round the corner towards Fish Hoek. The beach, accessed by crossing a railway crossing, is a long stretch of white sand, fairly popular with body boarders, and a bit of walk further along the beach will take you on to Fish Hoek - a great family beach.

You’re right in the suburbs of Cape Town here and yet Clovelly manages to have an appealing country quality about it. The neighbourhood is upmarket and homes sell for over R2.5 million, yet the suburb lies on the mountain slope above the beach with beautiful views of False Bay and the Clovelly valley below, surrounded by dunes and some wonderful stretches of indigenous fynbos, which has earned the area its rural reputation.

Clovelly golf course lies in this picturesque valley and has been carefully shaped to compliment the coastal environment, and guinea fowl and pheasants as well as natural sand dunes make it a tranquil but challenging experience.

From Clovelly you are close to Kommetjie and Scarborough - a beautiful coastal drive - pop into Imhoff farm on your way. And Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve offer a wonderful outing, with over 1 000 indigenous plant species on display, at least 250 species of bird, a number of buck and baboons as well as some beautiful beaches.
