BREATH TAKING VIEWS () IN SOUTH AFRICA
Betty's Bay ~~ Stunning plot of approximately Square meters of fynbos vegetation on t he slopes of the mountain. Breath taking views of the ocean to the South and mountains to the North. Arthur Youldon’s daughter, Betty, gave her name to Betty’s Bay. Italian prisoners of war during the Second World War did construction and worked on the road from Gordons Bay. During the War Cape Hangklip assumed strategic military importance as a sentinel guarding the Eastern Shore of False Bay from the lurking menace of the U-boats.. At present Betty’s Bay and surrounding towns of Kleinmond Rooiels and Pringle Bay are growing at a phenomenal rate as not only retired people settle here, but new and varied businesses are established as well light industries, especially in the building trade. Betty’s Bay stretches between ocean and mountain for 13 kilometres, has no street lights, mostly gravel roads and numerous green belts allow for small wild life to multiply and roam free. Star gazing if one of the most awesome past times to be had when night falls. Two beaches allow for long leisurely strolls on seemingly endless stretches of soft sand whilst Draadbaai can keep keen divers and fishermen busy for hours. The Penquin colony is another memorable site to visit. The lakes are suitable for swimming, rowing, windsurfing and host some fresh water fish species for the more relaxed angler. In Betty’s Bay you find waterfalls and hiking trails that wind all along the mountains through to the Harold Porter Botanical Gardens which offers the most inspiring variety of indigenous plants and flowers. Invest in this beautiful part of the Cape Whale Coast and raise your family on fresh air in the very heart of nature, as it was intended to be.
