What a stunning place with a beautiful view. A short walk and you are on the beach, enjoyed every moment of it. After a midday braai nothing beats the traquil sound of the ocean to get you into that peaceful afternoon slumber.

Really enjoyed this one night stay and would stay longer in the future. What a stunning view, well equipped and so peaceful with long strolls on the beach. A gem of a find. A lovely location and great value for a group of 6.

We booked to go to Rugged Rocks but due to family matters of the health of a relative we have been forced to change our plans. We paid for our accommodation in advance . I have to give accolades to Rugged Rocks that they are an honorable and class act. They refunded our deposit and while we will miss out going back to this beautiful coast this year, I write this review to commend the management and owners. These days, the honest business ethics of Rugged Rocks are hard to find, while we still fight with another establishment for a Rage booking refund for over 7 months. I trust this review will contribute to ongoing prosperity of Rugged Rocks and we will endeavor to get there done day soon.

I have always enjoyed my stay at Rugged Rocks Beach Cottages. They are clean and provide all that you need in the way of facilities. You do need a car here as it is a little remote but there is a fantastic mall not too far away by car from which all your supplies can be obtained. I would if I could stay there for a month or more. It is a wonderful place to reflect, have family get togethers, birthdays, get fit! A wonderful healthy environment with pristine beaches which encourage long walks! I love the place!
