Ultimate guide to whale watching in Cape Town "Amazing. Isn’t nature just great" Types of whales you’re likely to spot in South Africa The southern right whale, humpback whale and the Bryde’s whale are the most commonly sighted on South Africa’s Western Cape coast. Best places for whale watching in Cape Town Well, clearly the Atlantic Seaboard is getting its fair share of sightings, but according to the official Cape Town Tourism website, these are the places to be. False Bay: If you don’t feel like travelling far, there are a few great whale-watching spots near the city of Cape Town. Opt for the higher vantage points along the False Bay coastline such as Cape Point, Boyes Drive between St James and Kalk Bay, and Clarence Drive between Gordon’s Bay and Rooi Els. Hermanus: Rated as one of the top 12 whale-watching locations in the world by the World Wildlife Fund, Hermanus offers some fine land-based viewing opportunities because the whales often come within metres of the shoreline. Cape Agulhus: Up to 50 pairs of southern right cows and calves have been known to frolic in the ocean near the southernmost tip of Africa. The Whale Trail, a five-day hike along the cliffs, dunes, and beaches, gives you a wonderful opportunity to view these mighty mammals and their offspring. Best time for whale watching Along the Cape south coast, June to November is a good time, although some will already be as far north as KwaZulu-Natal. Peak calving season is July and August, but whales can be seen through September and October." Stony Point Penguin Colony | Betty’s Bay "Stony Point Penguin ColonyStony Point Penguin Colony is one of only two mainland colonies of African Penguin and is reached by the most beautiful coastal route called Clarence Drive. The mountains hug the coast line and photographic opportunities abound. A fence has been erected around the penguin colony to keep local leopard and other predators at bay. Bank Cormorant also breed here, alongside the more common Crowned, Cape and White-breasted Cormorants. Directions: From Cape Town, take the N2 to Somerset West. Turn right onto the R44 and follow to Betty’s Bay. To reach Stony Point, take the sign posted right turn towards the coast, just before you enter Betty’s Bay."

Ultimate guide to whale watching in Cape Town "Amazing. Isn’t nature just great" Types of whales you’re likely to spot in South Africa The southern right whale, humpback whale and the Bryde’s whale are the most commonly sighted on South Africa’s Western Cape coast. Best places for whale watching in Cape Town Well, clearly the Atlantic Seaboard is getting its fair share of sightings, but according to the official Cape Town Tourism website, these are the places to be. False Bay: If you don’t feel like travelling far, there are a few great whale-watching spots near the city of Cape Town. Opt for the higher vantage points along the False Bay coastline such as Cape Point, Boyes Drive between St James and Kalk Bay, and Clarence Drive between Gordon’s Bay and Rooi Els. Hermanus: Rated as one of the top 12 whale-watching locations in the world by the World Wildlife Fund, Hermanus offers some fine land-based viewing opportunities because the whales often come within metres of the shoreline. Cape Agulhus: Up to 50 pairs of southern right cows and calves have been known to frolic in the ocean near the southernmost tip of Africa. The Whale Trail, a five-day hike along the cliffs, dunes, and beaches, gives you a wonderful opportunity to view these mighty mammals and their offspring. Best time for whale watching Along the Cape south coast, June to November is a good time, although some will already be as far north as KwaZulu-Natal. Peak calving season is July and August, but whales can be seen through September and October." Stony Point Penguin Colony | Betty’s Bay "Stony Point Penguin ColonyStony Point Penguin Colony is one of only two mainland colonies of African Penguin and is reached by the most beautiful coastal route called Clarence Drive. The mountains hug the coast line and photographic opportunities abound. A fence has been erected around the penguin colony to keep local leopard and other predators at bay. Bank Cormorant also breed here, alongside the more common Crowned, Cape and White-breasted Cormorants. Directions: From Cape Town, take the N2 to Somerset West. Turn right onto the R44 and follow to Betty’s Bay. To reach Stony Point, take the sign posted right turn towards the coast, just before you enter Betty’s Bay."

    Antilles on Beach offers its guests an unforgettable stay where you can experience sunsets like you’ve never seen before. The apartment in which guests will stay is completely private and separate but situated the main house. The house is on the beach front where guests can access the beach via the estate’s beach gate. The estate provides a heated pool as well as tennis and squash courts. The village which includes shops, restaurants and bars is a five minute drive away.
    The apartment in which guests will stay is seperate and private from the main house. The rooms face the estate side and have views of the mountains with some but limited sea views. Each room has its own bathroom and kitchenette. There is a public lounge area as well as communal laundry room containing a washing machine, tumble dryer, sink and ironing board. Guests can access the beach via the estate and have access to a public pool, tennis and squash courts.
    Gordon's Bay is a 20 minute drive from the start of the Winelands and 45 minutes from Cape Town City. The village containing shops, restaurants and bars in Gordon's Bay is somewhat limited and, therefore we suggest spending some time in Cape Town. Easy transport can be arranged. Cape Town City offers a wider range of restaurants, shops and bars with a few more activities but the beaches cannot compare to Gordon's Bay's secluded, quiet and beautiful beaches.

  • The apartment is very nice and equipped with every comfort. It is located in a quiet and safe location not far from the beach, supermarkets and restaurants. In the evening when it gets dark they advised us not to walk alone and therefore we had to rent a car because the location does not have on-site taxis and public transport services. The owners are very attentive to the safety of their guests and have provided us with all kinds of information on the location and its surroundings. Under their guidance we spent an unforgettable stay.

    Barbara2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
