Camping and caravan in Betty's Bay
With a generous coastline and spectacular mountains, it’s no surprise that the Overberg is a popular destination for camping and caravan holidays. There’s something unforgettable about watching the sun set over the ocean as you hear the soft sounds of a campsite preparing for the night ahead. When you pair that with the pleasure of waking up to the smells of cook fires and sunblock you know you’re in for a treat.
Fortunately, there are a number of exquisite campsites in the Betty’s Bay area. Ideal for families and groups of friends, these spots are fully kitted out for tents and caravans alike. Whether you’d prefer to be based along the shores of the red Palmiet River, up on the side of the mountain or on the banks of the Atlantic Ocean, you can find a world-class spot to make camp. Some of these locations boast much-loved swimming areas and sports facilities, while others are situated in protected areas and provide the simple essentials required for a much-needed nature retreat.
One of the major attractions of Betty’s Bay camp sites is the freedom and safety they offer families with children. With secure boundaries and loads of activities, mom and dad can breathe a sigh of relief as their little ones play in the shallows and build castles in the sand. However, there are many things for the older kids – and grownups – to enjoy as well. With so many winding rivers in the area there’s no shortage of bridges to jump from and those who are there for the waves can catch the surf they’ve been waiting for.
If you’re looking for a camping and caravan park, you can be sure to find a well-managed resort with all of the amenities you require. There’s no need to worry about ablutions or kitchen facilities as these camp sites are known for the comfort they offer within the great outdoors. Some are even pet-friendly which means you can bring your dogs and watch as they race down the beach, working off some of their tireless energy.
The Overberg is known among travellers as an area of exquisite beauty and if you’re the kind of person who prefers to experience it from a campsite, you can be sure of a holiday you’ll remember for years to come. From sandy beach camping for those who really want to rough it to fully equipped caravan parks, Betty’s Bay has a place for you.
