Boat trips and deep sea fishing trips in False Bay can be booked at the old harbour.

The beaches are beautiful with white sand, rock pools, shallow paddling areas and calm seas. The sea is much warmer than you will find on the Atlantic coast. Bikini Beach has been awarded Blue Flag status, an international quality rating of the highest order.
