Area description

Kommetjie is a small seaside village situated about half way down the west coast of the Cape Peninsula and about 35 kilometres from Cape Town City Centre.

Nestled between Slangkop mountain and the Atlantic Ocean, Kommetjie started out as a weekend beach retreat for Capetonians who built beach houses here in the early 1900's and it has still retained much of its unspoilt charm and the feeling of escaping from the relative buzz of the Mother City.

Life in this beautiful setting is still very much focussed around the 5km stretch of Kommetjie's "Long Beach". Long Beach has a reputation as one of Cape Town's finest spots for crayfishing (when permitted in the summer months), surfing and other water sports but is equally lovely just for long walks and relaxing, with a tidal pool that woks well for children.
