Betty’s Bay is a beautiful town, in fact, it’s the longest town in Southern Africa, but for the discerning prospective homeowner that is not enough to make one of (if not) the biggest financial commitments of your entire life. So, here are five more reasons why you should move to Betty’s Bay:
- A florist’s paradise. Betty’s Bay is smack dab in the middle of the Kogelberg Biosphere, one of the most biodiverse regions in terms of plant life in the world.
- Penguins. Betty’s Bay is home to one of only two shore-based African Penguin colonies in South Africa. The Stoney Point Nature Reserve and CapeNature oversee these rare tuxedo birds and keep them breeding so you can watch them waddle all the way into your old age.
- Pristine beaches. The Betty’s Bay coastline is mainly made up of rocky shores, but every now and again there is a beautiful beach that just pops up and begs to be enjoyed.
- Sandboarding. The sand dunes that are found in Betty’s Bay are some of the best in Africa, some of which reach a height of 200m.
- Hiking. Set between the ocean and the mountains, Betty’s Bay is spectacularly equipped to scratch all those nature loving and hiking itches you’ve wanted to scratch for so long.
