Llandudno - Cape Town - South Africa:

Only 18 km from the centre of Cape Town and approached by one of the most scenic drives, over Suikerbossie Hill from Hout Bay or in the other direction from Camps Bay, along Victoria Road. Llandudno lies nestled in a private and peaceful cove with one of the most secluded and beautiful beaches in the city. Villas and self catering accommodation in this area are extremely limited and highly exclusive. Why, you may ask? Llandudno is an upmarket area renowned for being private and secure as it can only be accessed by one thoroughfare and has no commercial developments whatsoever in the enclave. Thus holiday makers seeking safe and private self catering Cape Town accommodation often secure their Llandudno accommodation well in advance of their visit.

The Twelve Apostles stretch off to one side, whilst Little Lion’s Head and the Karbonkelberg Mountain sweep off in the other direction. The beautiful beach, renowned for its white sands, crisp blue waters and giant boulders is arguably one of the most photogenic in Cape Town and a favourite for beach sports like volleyball, beach rugby, surfing; a great deal of sun-worshipping and a preferred picnic spot for families.

Llandudno Beach:

The beautiful white sand beach remains unspoiled and the unique Cape fynbos stretches off in both directions, largely untouched. A 20 minute walk from Sunset On The Rocks brings one to Sandy Bay, the famous nude beach, and a five minute drive takes you over the hill from Llandudno to the village of Hout Bay, where there are plenty of restaurants, shopping centres and other options for the whole family.

What to See in Hout Bay (5km south of Llandudno):

Hout Bay has a working fishing harbour with loads of character and this has various excellent fish shops , restaurants and plenty of boat tours and big game fishing operators. One of the main attractions in Hout Bay is the World of Birds. This bird park is the largest in Africa and is home to over 3 000 birds and a variety of small animals. An amazing experience awaits you here, walking through the bird cages, watching and playing with the monkeys while supporting this excellent team of bird lovers and rescuers! Not to be missed!

Visit the Hout Bay Craft Market on Sundays (across the road from the Post Office in Main Rd) to see a wealth of local arts and crafts.

What to See in Camps Bay (5km north of Llandudno):

Camps Bay is surely one of the most beautiful bays in the world today – nestled between the mountain range of Lions Head, Table Mountain and the Twelve Apostles and overlooking the endless vista of the mighty Atlantic Ocean.

Camps Bay Beach offers spectacular views of Lion's Head and the Twelve Apostles and its fine white sand is packed with beautiful people, especially over weekends and during holidays. The sea is, due to Camps Bay’s protected position in the bay, quite calm and good for swimming. At the southern end, you will find a tidal pool. The northern part is great for surfing. Needless to say the Atlantic ocean is very cold so your swim will be short! There is a stretch of lawn in front of the beach where picnics are often enjoyed.
