The Hangklip Peninsular


... is located in the Cape area of the Western Cape region in South Africa.

Coming out across the Cape Flats from Cape Town, the mountainous promontory of Hangklip stands out over the ocean.

This dramatic landscape of fynbos vegetation and remote beaches is where our strandlopers ancestors lived many thousands of years ago. In more recent centuries it has be home to pirates and remained pretty wild until quite recently.

These days however the beaches and bays are becoming increasingly overrun by rashes of owner-designed holiday and retirement homes.

The drive around Hangklip used to be considered the scenic way to reach Hermanus and, whilst it does remain the more interesting route, our advice is not to get too excited about the prospect ... although the penguin colony at Betty's Bay and the Harold Porter Botanical Gardens may provide some modest interest.
