Additional Location Information
Kleinmond (meaning : "Little river mouth"), is a picturesque seaside village situated at the foot of the Kogelberg mountains. It lies next to a lagoon at the small mouth - hence the name - of the Bot River, on a narrow strip of land. Kleinmond is flanked by the Kogelberg mountain range on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other side. This very peaceful little village, endowed with some of the coast's most natural beauty, will mean you can enjoy some of the most beautiful landscapes and seascapes.
Kleinmond offers a variety of activities for both nature lovers and sports enthusiasts. Perhaps you would prefer to take long walks along the shore, or maybe just sunbathe, or have a refreshing swim, or you can opt to watch whales frolicking in the shallow water near the beach. The harbour also offers quaint restaurants and shops.
For the more energetic, there are tennis courts and bowling greens in Kleinmond, where visitors are welcome. Horse riding is available at the Arabella Equestrian Centre and for those who prefer a leisurely cycle ride, a rent-a-bicycle facility is available just outside the town.
The Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve has great outdoor venues and offers a variety of adventurous activities such as tubing and white water rafting on the Palmiet River. Nearby hiking trails abound with spectacular views of the mountains as well as the rocky coastline.
