A magnificent getaway with most outstanding views within 3 minutes walking distance to either the Robberg (try the walk during low tide it is almost 8km both ways) and Central Beach. Very pleasant village with lovely coffee shops and lots of places to eat especially Enricos This resort is very highly recommended.
