Aquatic sports: Cape Town is an aquatic sports paradise. For kite and windsurfers, Cape Town belongs to the best spots in the world with a steady and mostly strong south-eastern wind from November to April. The waves coming mostly side shore can reach considerable heights. In the surrounding area you can find premium spots like e.g. Scarborough (30 mins), Nordhoek (20 mins) und Big Bay (35 mins). Despite the fact that there are more central places for wind and kitesurfing, the view, the nature , the family suitability and the excursion proximity offer so much, that it’s worth driving the 30 mins. The places near Big Bay are quite dry and arid, and you just can’t compare it with our green paradise.
Surfer & Stand up paddler will also be thrilled. Smaller waves for longboards can be found in Hout Bay, but in Llandudno it becomes much more challenging. Muizenberg, situated on the other side of the bay, (approx. 20 mins) is perfect. The water is about 2-4 degrees warmer and often provides perfect waves for children, intermediate and advanced students.
In the area around Hout Bay, mountainbiker will enjoy themselves too. There are countless trails and roads that are simply breathtaking. Some companies offer guided routes, but bike apps providing very good guidance are also available.
The house has mountain bikes that are free to use.
In addition, there is a tennis court in the Ruyteplaats Estate (approx. 3 min walking), some golf courts nearby and horseback riding possibilities. e f.ex. in Nordhoek on the beach, paragliding from Lions Head, there are plenty of running routes (e.g. the Hout Bay beach) in the town as well as a yoga studio and 2 fitness centers.
