Budget self-catering accommodation in Betty's Bay
When it comes to holidays by the seaside, there is one little town that knows what it is doing. There is a wide range of accommodation in Betty’s Bay that suits even the most budget-conscious traveller. One of the top picks for many who come to stay here is self-catering. This is because this type of accommodation gives you freedom, comfort and a place you can really call home while you travel. You can run your holiday the way you want to, with no schedules or plans other than what you want to do.
There are quite a few budget self-caterings on offer in this quiet little town, allowing you to pick the size that best suits your needs. Self-catering is great for families or large groups that are travelling together. You get more than just a comfortable place to sleep at night. You get rooms for socialising in, for hanging out in and for relaxing in. Additionally, you get your own kitchen so you can prepare meals or snacks together, rather than always eating out at restaurants while you’re on holiday. This means you can save money, and bond with your fellow travellers.
Betty’s Bay is a unique place along the Cape Whale Coast. It draws the attention of tourists in the summer and in the whale watching months. However, it has never grown too large or got too busy that it loses its seaside charm. Even in the busiest moments of tourist season, you can still catch quiet moments on the beach or while out wandering through the town. You never feel like you’re just part of a crowd, staring at the attractions. The locals will greet you and take the time to ensure you are enjoying your stay. It’s that friendliness and warmth that can’t be beat.
All of these facts is why Betty’s Bay is such a big drawcard for those travelling on a budget. The prices of accommodation and in general around the town are not so high that visiting here has become unattainable. You can also use the town as a great basecamp for touring through other spots in the Overberg region. It’s not too far from some of the big attractions in the area, including national parks, botanical gardens, excellent wine farms and some of the best beaches in the world. You even have Stony Point – one of only two shore-based penguin colonies in South Africa. This historic point is actually right in the town itself, and is well worth a visit.
