About the neighbourhood
Situated on the cliffs of Walker Bay in De Kelders, and 3 kilometres away from Gansbaai - the Great White shark capital of the world - our apartment offers the perfect setting to explore the beautiful Overberg region in the Western Cape of South Africa. De Kelders is internationally renowned as the best land-based whale watching venue in the world. There are also many beautiful white sand beaches in the area ranging from the De Kelders cove directly below the apartment; Stanford Cove; Pearly Beach and the seemingly never-ending De Plaat in the Walker Bay Nature Reserve and marine sanctuary. The beautiful privately-owned Grootbos Nature Reserve, widely acclaimed for its conservation of fynbos - fauna unique to the Western Cape region of South Africa - is 1km from De Kelders. There is abunda... more
Getting around
There is no public transport in De Kelders so a car is necessary to access shopping (about 3 km away), the sights and most of the beaches. There is a very nice restaurant about 100m from the apartment and a beach at the cove directly below the apartment.
