Nestled in a grove of Milkwood trees, overlooking charming Leentjiesklip Bay, the Beach House offers a welcome haven for the travel weary backpacker and adventure tourist alike.

Light and airy, this old house has beach white dorms with sea views and rooms with windows looking onto endless blue skies. A herb garden where bees hum away the lazy summer days invite a stroll or an afternoon spent reading, and an intimate little pub where local food is complimented with ice cold drinks might deliver a friendly game of pool.

The beach is a stone’s throw away from the viewing decks, where early morning viewings between May and November draw guests from their slumber to watch the whales frolic just beyond the surf. Then it is off to the open air terrace at 9am for a delicious health breakfast, complete with a fresh baked muffin, before heading off for a day of adventure or rest.

The area is steeped in local history, and lends itself to adventurous outdoor activities – from horse riding and paragliding to hiking and surfing. Whether you are on a flying visit or intend to spend a few days recovering from a busy travel schedule, action and dreamy days mix well in the Wilderness.
