|The main road leading to the beach|
The beach is quite long, about three kilometers from the town main road to Koeberg and is a favorite kite surfing and surfing spot. Fishing is also popular here and on a hot day the beach fills up with families enjoying the outdoors.
There are a number of restaurants here, some of them quite good, others, well we all have our preferences
During the week most people migrate to work in surrounding areas so the town becomes a lot quieter, children are at school, dads are out working and moms and grandparents abound. It's a lovely little place.
Sniff, sniff, dig, bark, chase seagulls, pant, pan!
On the weekends of course things get a bit more crowded with children everywhere accompanied by parents enjoying the break from the office.
This blue building houses the Seafood Lapa Restaurant, Eastern Fusion, A sushi bar and of all things, a barber shop that's been there for as long as I can remember.
That's enough of statistics. Here are a few pictures to give you some idea what this place looks like. It is a great little town in my opinion.
