“Sweet little harbour with tons of fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Nice place to catch a few rays and while away a few hours. There are beaches with umbrella rentals and lots of places to shop and eat. Fun for the day or just a few hours.

“Very nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Small town on the sea shore. Only 20 mins from Cape Town so great for a half day out or to eat in the evening. Plenty of good resturants with good prices.

“A piece of Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Such a variety of things to do, from the World of Birds, a trip to Seal Island, and great seafood at Mariners Wharf.Our friends wowed about the fish and chips at "Fish on the Rocks". Unspoilt beaches and fantastic mountain views.
