Over the last decade, The Hartenbos Area has become the most popular holiday destination for families, couples, and travelers along the south coast of South Africa. Tens of thousands of people from the northern provinces choose to have their summer holiday here, with more people also traveling from abroad to visit its sun-kissed, Blue Flag beaches.
The Hartenbos Area is one of those ideal locations for staying in self-catered accommodation as you truly have access to all manner of activities, events, and locales – regardless of gender, age or background. There’s something for everyone!
Hartenbos Area Everything under the sun at your own pace
An idiom that embodies the spirit of the The Hartenbos Area holiday. Holiday-goers staying in accommodation and self-catering for themselves while still tasting local produce and having access to much cheaper and centrally-located facilities than they would in a hotel will be able to set their own pace for their South Africa trip and take in the local atmosphere as they see fit.
The Hartenbos Area is also a part of the Whale and Garden Route, sited between Mossel Bay and George, meaning there’ll be plenty of opportunities to visit the fantastic gardens and parks that feature Victorian décor and architecture – as well as dolphin, whale, and seal watching, whether from a boat or the warm, soothing sands of the whitewashed beaches.
For the more daring, you can even opt to swim with dolphins and sharks with one of the specialist research centers that offer travelers an unforgettable experience to be alongside these majestic creatures.
Hartenbos Area Antiques, trinkets, and bargains
Whether it’s visiting the local charity shops during the daytime or the myriad of colorful kiosks that pop up on the main street, there’ll be bargains for the budding adventurer. At the peak of the holiday season, the main street kiosks vendor anything from handmade clothing, holiday trinkets, rustic antiques, delicious seafood, and local cuisine.
