About Anchor's Rest

Anchor's Rest is a 1.8Km stroll to the village centre, which you can do along the spectacular cliff paths, whilst viewing whales in season. It lies between the historic Old Harbour (in the village) and the New Harbour and restaurants (within 10 minutes walking distance).

Attractions & Activities

The cliff paths offering spectacular whale viewing, and wild flowers are just about on our doorstep. Stroll along them to the village about1.8 km and visit the picturesque Old Harbour and museum. Browse through the craft shops and art galleries and stop for refreshments at one of the pavement cafes overlooking the bay.

Take a drive to the spectacular beaches including Grotto Beach with Blue Flag status and walk to the lagoon. Visit the New Harbour within walking distance and see the active fishing boats, and enjoy a meal (or a sundowner) at one of the 2 restaurants overlooking the sea. Choose one of the graded hiking trails in the Fernkloof Reserve, home to over 1600 plant species or take a leisurely drive through the Hemel en Aarde Valley and enjoy a wine tour at one of the estates.

For the more adventurous there are whale and great white shark tours, scuba diving, paragliding and kayaking. Or enjoy a game of golf at one of the two world class golf courses. Ride a horse along the beach.

Verified reviewvery good

We stayed at the Driftwood cottage and had our own small garden. The owner was very friendly and helpful. The place was clean and neat and had everything we needed. The bed was very comfortable. The WiFi was working well. It is value for money. We can definitely recommend this accommodation and will try and come back.
