Here’s yet another film-set masquerading as a B&B… this one is for the beach scenes! Hans and Liesbeth have the very envy-inducing run of three and a half kilometres of pristine beach to themselves, the fine white sand of the dunes as pure as it is wind-driven (but for the odd vervet monkey footprint). As well as offering rollercoaster 4x4 dune safaris, Oyster Bay Lodge has fifteen horses, catering for every skill level, which roam free on the 235 hectare nature reserve.…
… The first time I visited there simply wasn’t time for a beach ride, so I dreamt hard for two weeks and managed to dream it into reality, returning to experience for real the wind in my hair, salt air in my face and sun shining down… amazing. But there’s more: Hans and Liesbeth have made hiking trails from the sand dunes through the fynbos where you’ll have a chance to see some of the 170 species of bird. I could hear them, but didn’t quite catch a glimpse. Your stay is very personable and relaxing with use of the swimming pool and self-catering facilities if you choose. Otherwise, the restaurant serves up an absolute five course treat, often with a fresh catch of the day. Come here for the empty beach, the horses and walks along an unspoilt coastline, the mountain bikes and the picnics at tables set upon the dunes overlooking the ocean. Day-tours can be taken to nearby Tsitsikamma Nature Reserve and Baviaanskloof.
