This is a lovely backpackers, clean, tide with very helpful staff and as the name wouls suggest right on the beach. There is a small shopping centre close by (5min walk) for food and spar, but it is limited. This b/p is quite out the way unless you have a car (as is often the case in SA). Having said that there is an airport shuttle that can be redirected to get back from town (R70). I would recommend for a few nights if you'd like a quiet place to stay and chill out


Really exceptional staff and hospitality.
