Beachview is the perfect country retreat
Just a 30 min drive from the airport and 25 min from the city center, this is the perfect country retreat, ideal for a quick stop over, outdoor activities or lazy holidays.
Beachview is known for its beautiful rock formations, gullies and pools. Bottlenose dolphins are the most frequently observed dolphins and can be spotted all year round. Common dolphins are often spotted from January to June as they follow large shoals of baitfish which move past the bay.
Whale season begins in June when we see humpback whales moving along the coast as they head up the East coast of Africa towards their breeding grounds. Humpback whales can be seen in between June and early January, reaching peaks in July/August and again in November/December when they make their return journey, with calves in tow. Southern right whales can be seen from July to October as they enter the safety of the bay to give birth. Southern right whales are usually seen very close inshore they are the most frequently observed whales along the South African coast. We recommend a wildlife and whale watching cruise on Raggy Charter to provide you with a better chance of seeing the full array of marine wildlife Algoa Bay has to offer.
Beachview provides an ideal base for exploring this virtually undiscovered gem of the Eastern Cape. There are endless possibilities for cycling, fishing, snorkeling and walking.T he Maitland Forest Nature Reserve, Sacramento and Island nature Reserve trails are nearby.
The most popular cycle route runs past the property. Two challenging 4×4 trails are a few minutes away. The local roads are virtually empty. We have no streetlights and an extremely low crime rate. Slightly further afield are the Baviaanskloof, Garden Route and numerous Game Parks.
