Every year I make a point of it not only to go on an overseas trip, if possible, but to visit the garden route. When I’m talking about the Garden Route I’m referring to Hartenbos, Klein Brak, Mosselbay, Victoria Bay, Knysna and more. Since a little kid me and my parents have been visiting this area and ever since I’ve been in love with it’s beauty.
This is a must for every traveler visiting South Africa. Forget about the West Coast or visiting the Drakensberge. Those areas are great but if your looking for real natural beauty and somewhere to enjoy the sand between your toes and catch a few great waves the Garden Route’s the place to be. Every year after visiting I come back home feeling more relaxed than ever. I always ask myself what’s stopping me from moving their permanently but I’m afraid it will lose it’s charm if I’m there to often.
So if your looking for one of the best beach destinations in South Africa do yourself a favor and visit Victoria Bay on a nice sunny day. Vic Bay is about 20 minutes from George which is approximately a 4-5 hour drive from Cape Town. Take a look at this amazing location here:
