A mere 2.5 hours beautiful scenic drive from Cape Town International Airport, is Pearly Beach. The beachfront house is in this small, quiet, safe and quaint coastal village. A 20 min walk along the beach-road to the local store have everything you need. A 10 minute walk brings you to the best prawn baskets at the local restaurant - eat as much as you can, while sipping at a local whine or beer. Friendly people, that would gladly show you directions to the close-by artistic town of Baardskeersderbos, or how to get to the Black Oyster Catcher Wine Cellar. Great Whale watching spots if you get tired to watching whales from the front deck/porch. And a mere 20 minutes drive is the well known White Shark Cage diving companies that will gladly take you out for a lifetime experience to watch these majestic creatures. Bird-watching is great past-time. And off-course you don't even take your towel to the beach if you go for a swim... it's so close.
The best is to have a rental car/your own transport, as there is no public transport to Pearly Beach.
On prior arrangement, a pick-up and drop-off service can be arranged if you do not want to rent a car.
