Relax in the beautiful and peaceful indigenous gardens with huge Coral trees, large swimming pool and braai area. The lodge offers DSTV, DVD player and WiFi.

A wonderful new development is the oceanside lapa, overlooking the beach it is a very special place for a picnic lunch or family barbecue. In the evening relax with a drink while the sun sets and a million stars sparkle in the southern sky. By day watch dolphins and whales and be lulled by the sound of waves washing the white sand.
