Crayfish Lodge Sea & Country Guesthouse

The lodge is situated right in front of a small, sandy beach, while the heated pool ensures that winter or summer, you’ll get to enjoy a dip on your seaside holiday. If you’re the adventurous type, chat to your hosts about Great White Shark viewing and cage diving, horse riding, scenic flights to Cape Agulhas, quad biking through local vineyards or take a sea safari with the Marine Big 5’ which includes whales, dolphins, penguins, Cape Fur Seals and Great White Sharks.
