Park
“The Cape is the home of South African golf, and Clovelly ranks as one of the finest courses in the Cape Peninsula. Once only a nine-hole and mainly sand course, Clovelly was designed by Dr Charles Molteno Murray, one of the best known golf architects of his day. Advocate Bobby Lewin was responsible for much of the magnificent landscaping.”

Beach
“The soft white sands of Clovelly Beach have been the starting point for relaxing morning and evening strolls around the Fish Hoek bay for generations. Fringed with ancient sand-dunes and washed by the 'Indian ocean', beach-goers enjoy a temperature that's often several degrees warmer than the Atlantic waters on the peninsula's west side.”

Point of Interest
“One of Kalk Bay’s plethora of pools, Wooley’s may not be as big as Dalebrook or St James, but it has its own merits. The addition of a smaller pool, tucked away in the corner of the larger tidal pool, provides a unique touch. Younger children can paddle around in the smaller section, while more experienced swimmers take a dip in the deep end. The flat rocks next to the pool are a nice spot to sit and watch the waves crash against the shore, but be careful traversing them, as they become slippery due to the persistent watery onslaught. ”
