The backdrop of the spectacular mountain ranges and a short drive are endless beaches, lovley dunes, whale watching, watching stingrays, the real southern point of Africa, shipwrecks or lively promenades … All this can be experienced from Swellendam on small excursions or day trips.

It takes only 45 minutes to reach Witsand, Cap Agulhas is just a little bit over one hour away. To Hermanus it is not more than one hours.
