Directions to LagoonAndSea

From the airport:
• Take the N2 from Cape Town and drive past Somerset West, without turning and over Sir Lowry’s Pass (R300 / N2 intersection to top of Sir Lowry’s Pass = 36km)
• Continue on the N2 passing Houwhoek Inn Hotel on the left-hand side (23km)
• Continue to the base of the pass on the far side and you will reach the Kleinmond / Hermanus R43 turnoff after another 5,5km
• Take the left off ramp, where signboard indicates Kleinmond / Hermanus R43
• Stay on the R43 road straight past the Kleinmond turnoff on the right-hand side (after 9,7km)
• You will cross over the Northern end of the Bot River and see the 5 Star Arabella Hotel & Golf Estate with beautiful expanse of lagoon stretching towards the mouth and sea on your right
• Turn right at Fisherhaven signpost (after another 8km). The entrance road to Fisherhaven has wide, white wall pillars at the entrance on both sides
• You are now on China Marais Road, and will turn left into Farm Road just after the speed bump at the first stop. This road makes a sharp 80 degree right turn after a few hundred metres
• Continue to the T-junction a few hundred metres further and turn left. After about 200 metres turn first right onto a cement road to the private estate signposted Meerensee / Meerenbosch / Sandown Bay
• Proceed carefully along the cement road for about 2km to the Middlevlei entrance. Please be courteous and fill out the security form requirements at this check point (if you are requested to further prove right of entry, show your completed contract documents as well).
• Drive another about 1km to the end of the tennis courts (still on the cement road). Now turn left 30m after the tennis courts at the Meerensee sign. You are now on gravel with speed bumps – go very slowly. Stay on the gravel road which gradually keeps going right until you get to the cul-de-sac. Chalet number 6 is on your right (10 metres of glass front doors). Park on the driveway
