We spent 3 afternoons on the dunes trying to surf down them. We attempted it with cardboard, wood and boogieboards; TO NO AVAIL. If you know how to get down these massive dunes please drop me a line! Quite near the beach parking lot .......More

It's quite a long trek to the very end of "Die Plaat" but those wanting a good work out will enjoy the walk. Partly on loose sand (great for the legs), but also on dunes where the sand is nice and firmly compacted. So much...More

Not really walking distance so unless you are fortunate to own a vehicle to get to the furthest point then I would not recommend this trip. Awesome sunset views, or even a brunch on a gas stove is also nice. This area is also occupied...More

- beautiful walks in the dunes easily accessible from the hotel - great view of the fishermen setting off in the early morning tide but the gigantic jellyfish on the beach were not so appealing
