Kleinmond is a tranquil little coastal town between the mountain and the sea, situated inside a UNESCO-declared Biosphere, with over 1600 species of Fynbos. Just an hour away from Cape Town, and 20 minutes from Hermanus.
Small enough for a quiet weekend getaway, and big enough to have the infrastructure of sports facilities, restaurants, and shops.
Kleinmond has been put on the map and brought to the attention of many people in the Western Cape because of the annual two-day Jazz festival. Talented musicians bring their very best to this family-friendly party.
The tickets are affordable and alongside the soulful tunes there are some delicious treats on offer as well some arts, crafts and souvenirs from the seaside town. Make sure you diarise this event to not miss out on the fun!
Nature lovers will enjoy the hiking trails along the coastal walkway and for the more adventurous there are a number of hiking trails in the mountains. If you really feel adventurous, you can go ab-seiling, climbing, dune surfing or do river-rafting.
From June to November, Southern Right Whales can be seen from the coastline, where they come to mate and calf. Birders can tick off the Cape Rock Jumper, amongst 360 other species.
Of special interest are the wild horses, roaming free in the marshlands surrounding Kleinmond. Believed to be South Africa’s only herd of wild horses in a wetland habitat, you might catch a glimpse of them at the Bot River lagoon area, next to Rooisands Nature Reserve.
The champagne air, pristine beaches, spectacular seascapes and mountains will revitalize your mind, body and soul!
