Additional Location Information
LOCATION AND LOCAL ATTRACTIONS
Clovelly is 20-30 mins drive from the city centre and 30-40 mins from the Airport. It is roughly halfway between Cape Point and the city centre on Cape Towns False Bay coast.
Clovelly is a great base for your Cape Town holiday - enjoy the freshair of a greenbelt location while being in easy reach of the CBD.
The Winelands, Cape Point, Waterfront, Robben Island, Boulders penguins, Chapmans Peak, Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens and the famous restaurants and bars of trendy Kalk Bay fishing village are a short drive.
Cape Town Stadium is a half-hour drive, or you can take the train. The station is a 15 minute walk. Nearby beaches of white sand and calm tidal pools offer some of Cape Towns best swimming. Horse-riding, hiking, surfing, whale-watching, shark-diving, fishing, diving and outstanding scenic drives are nearby.
The soft white sands of Clovelly Beach have been the starting point for relaxing morning and evening strolls around the Fish Hoek bay for generations. Fringed with ancient sand-dunes and washed by the 'Indian ocean', beach-goers enjoy a temperature that's often several degrees warmer than the Atlantic waters on the peninsulas west side.
A small offshore ridge gives junior surfers a perfect little practice wave, and hobie-cats and sea-kayaks launch into the ocean further down. Clovelly beach provides a peaceful alternative to the busy Fish Hoek side of the bay. Whales often bask in the shallows from June to November, and dolphins provide great entertainment as they glide and bounce around in the surf.
Clovelly country club has been awarded 'gold' status by the SAA Golf Directory and is literally on your doorstep. Clovelly has an extended practice putting area as well as a championship 18-hole course. Two other gold-rated courses - Steenberg and Westlake - are a short 10m drive.
Clovelly is one of Cape Towns most popular courses, with fairways flanked by mountains on either side. Open to non-members, the course offers discounts for Western Cape affiliated members. Clubs, caddies, trolleys and carts are available. For less experienced players, the Simons Town 9-hole golf-course offers a spectacularly scenic alternative right on the ocean (10km from Clovelly).
