Why Lekkerwater Beach Lodge?

Set in a beautiful corner of the De Hoop Nature Reserve, Lekkerwater Beach Lodge offers guests a modern, eco-friendly stay in a spectacular ocean-front location.

Experience The area is renowned for its excellent land-based whale watching, but against the backdrop of flower-filled fynbos vegetation & distant purple mountains, De Hoop is also home to other animals like baboons, ostriches & eland as well as dolphins, tortoises & sea birds.

Easily reached via self-drive, Lekkerwater (translated as ‘the place of good water’), lies less than a 4-hour drive from Cape Town or the Winelands, which makes this an ideal stop on a Cape Town to Garden Route self-drive itinerary.

The lodge is a wonderful fit for all types of travellers – from couples, honeymooners & families with young children to wildlife enthusiasts, bird watchers & nature photographers.

Stay Lekkerwater Beach Lodge offers an intimate & off-the-beaten-track beachfront experience. There are only 7 suites, scattered along 6km of pristine white-sand beaches, one of which is a family unit.

Each suite boasts a private deck, offering uninterrupted views of the azure Indian Ocean & each year between July & November, guests may have the opportunity to witness whales breach in the bay as they migrate from Antarctica.

The beautiful floor-to-ceiling glass windows & wood-burning fireplaces complete each suite, along with open-plan en-suite showers offering a private peek at the ocean.

The family suite consists of 2 bedrooms & a shared bathroom with an open-plan shower. Kids have their own private loft – a magical little haven for young travellers.

At the main lodge, you will find a comfortable lounge with a fireplace, a dining room & a large deck with a swimming pool.

Activities Lekkerwater activities include whale watching, guided hikes to tidal rock pools & caves, bird watching, swimming & photography. Guests can also enjoy history talks or dine al fresco under the stars.
