This whole area is a bird watchers paradise with enormous lagoons, coastal birds and a mountain nature reserve which boarders the lagoon and the town.

We have excellent wine estates that are just out of town some of which have top restaurants for lunch or dinner. Shark cage diving is offered at Gansbaai which is a short drive away or transport can be arranged. We also have a light aircraft that will take you on whale spotting trips or to a game farm.

The cliff paths extend for over 10 km’s and are incredibly scenic. We also have a nature reserve that borders the town and has fantastic walks into the mountains.

Verified reviewexcellent

Vanaf 1996 komen wij jaarlijks in ZA - hebben dus heel wat ervaring met B & B's - maar wat prijs/kwaliteit verhouding betreft, vinden wij On The Cliff tot de top behoren - prachtig ingerichte en ruime kamers - fantastisch uitzicht op de oceaan - fraaie architectuur - uitstekende voorzieningen ( veilig parkeren - zwembad - leuke bar etc. ) - maar bovenal zijn het lieve mensen ( Charmaine en Hylton), die het verblijf zeer persoonlijk maken - we komen hier graag - kortom een adres, dat wij oprecht bij iedereen kunnen aanbevelen.
