The Long Beach is 5-star accommodation situated, as the name would suggest, along 8km of pristine white-sand coastline of Kommetjie. The bustling tourist Mecca of Cape Town is a mere 30-minute drive from the guesthouse, which places this lodging in the perfect vicinity for a peaceful escape, while never being too far away from where the activity is. With waves splashing onto the shore on your doorstep, The Long Beach is an ideal romantic getaway.
Untainted beaches are fabulous for an early morning or sunset stroll, a horse ride, surf or suntan. The Long Beach offers guests the alternative of the crystal swimming pool waters with a private deck, with lovely views over the sand and sea. From this prime positioning, guests are likely to spot whales just 100m from the shoreline. Kommetjie has established itself as a great surf spot, and is also home to an array of marine birds. South Africa's tallest lighthouse is also a famous feature of the little Western Cape Town.
