5 out of 5

Our beachside accommodation is ultra to comfortable, clean, and relaxed. Each double room has its own private bathroom, and a full sea view.

There is a small swimming pool that overlooks the ocean, with plenty of space to store your surfboards. There are three communal relaxing areas with beautiful tranquil views of the quiet beach outside the property. Relax, barbecue with our surf guides and take in the quiet beach lifestyle of the West Coast.

Breakfast is included in your accommodation fee. Surf lessons, guiding and equipment is available on request.

Location

Escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life, and visit the famous surfing stretch of West Coast (or Weskus as the locals call it) just a short 1.5 hour drive from Cape Town. The small fishing town of Britannia Bay has pristine, unspoiled beaches with white sand and a beautifully blue ocean. The small, gently rolling waves are perfect for those looking to learn to surf in a relaxed & fun environment.

For the more advanced surfers: Within a short driving distance with your private guide, you'll experience world to class waves like Elands Bay, Yo to Yos and more.

Research shows that time spent in the ocean helps improve mental clarity, reduce stress and increases overall wellbeing and happiness. So, what are you waiting for? :)

Thx Tracey and Ruan! Was a blast being your guest, I am really happy about everything you planned for me to make my trip in South Africa so unique and priceless. I’m really impressed with how passionate you are about showing your guests a good time and how you specifically planned my trip with everything I was up to. Everything was about fun and seeing beautiful, local and unknown places. I’m gonna miss you all. You made me feel so comfy, can’t thank you enough for the great time I had!

I did a week surf tour as a solo traveler and honestly it was one of the best trips I’ve ever done in my life. It was my first time visiting South Africa and I couldn’t have asked for a better introduction to South African waves and culture. Ru and Tracey are LEGENDS! Ru’s local insight and knowledge of surf breaks across South Africa and Namibia is unrivalled. He knew which breaks would be working given the weather and swell conditions and he was spot on. We surfed some really fun waves, and when the waves weren’t on, Ru and Tracey had a list of other awesome activities like waterfall hikes and cliff jumping in some of the most beautiful places. And Tracey’s cooking is amazing! Every day they prepared delicious meals with fresh ingredients, and introduced me to some awesome traditional South African dishes. I’m honestly still stoked and cannot wait to bring some friends back to this gem. Ru and Tracey are the most gracious and accommodating hosts and I cannot recommend this tour enough. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to enjoy the beauty of South Africa, hang with some of the kindest and coolest people, and surf some fun waves. I had such a blast and cannot wait to do it again!

I can't think of a better way to experience South African surf than using the services of South Africa Surf Tours. The surf lodge that accommodates all guests feels like home immediately, with beautiful bedrooms, stunning scenery, and two of the most likable Husky dogs you will ever meet. Your visit will consist of munching on delicious seafood as well as experiencing a traditional South African Braai. Last but certainly not least, the surf you will experience is incredible. Big, pitching waves with howling off shores that will make your favorite break back at home seem boring. Not to mention, you will have it all to yourselves. I can't speak highly enough of the hosts, Ru and Tracey, who do everything to make you feel right at home. South Africa Surf Tours is where it is at!

How did you like the accommodation?

     

The accommodation was very nice, a little country style and very clean. The hosts are amazing. It is a really lovely couple who would do anything for you. They really made the best trip out of it for us. We did amazing hikes, had a very nice braai and we went to friends of them which was very nice.


How were the surf lessons?

     

The surf lessons were nice, but it werent really surf lessons. It was just a push and he didnt explained anything or else. It was very funny tho, but we didnt learn very much of it. Of course you have to learn by doing it but he could have done a little bit more.

However, he did look after us and he was very nice

the beaches were amazing, with beautiful view. The only thing was with the last beach, he knew that the water was freezing cold, and he only had a short wetsuit for me, so i only could be in the water for like half an hour, otherwise I would freeze..

If you are looking for a highly personalized experience with true local guides, this is the place to be. Ru knows every corner in the wider area and can show you the best spots to surf and hike (there are plenty on offer).
Particularly appreciated were: the amazing breakfast, trail run at 7 am in the morning, fresh crayfish braai with Tracey and Ru’s friends.
At the end of the trip, I got the impression that I have a second home in Kleinmond, South Africa.

Koeel Bay

Koeel Bay

Level: Intermediate

Powerful right hand wedge beach break in the most epic setting imaginable. This wave is at the foot of a mountain range with spectacular landscapes surrounding the wave. Predominantly more consistent in the Summer months. The wave picks up a lot of swell and is not for the faint hearted.

Betty's Bay

Betty's Bay

Level: All Levels

A more sheltered peaky beach break that offers lefts and rights for any skill level. This wave is in very close proximity to the Saffa Beach House.The setting is picturesque, nestled in mountains. It can handle larger winter swells and generally works better in Winter months. This wave favours the winter winds.

Kleinmond

Kleinmond

Level: Intermediate

Predominantly left to breaking wave. Has a strong current that forces the wave into a rip bowl that can offer good barrels and fun sections when the conditions align.

Onrus

Onrus

Level: All Levels

A wave that consistently changes and can offer barrels and ramps for all skill levels. Predominantly a right hand wave but offers the occasional left. This is a well to known wave, it becomes a world class beach break when the conditions align.

Elands Bay

Elands Bay

Level: Intermediate

Eland’s Bay hamlet sits on a sandy riverbank, waiting for a swell to hit The Point. Steep drops into fast tubular walls, spinning across a kelp covered, low tide reef before bending into a sandy end section at the rivermouth.

Britannia Bay

Level: Beginner

Gentle rolling waves on a completely uncrowded beach makes for the perfect learn to surf spot.
