Staying near the Beach in Western Cape

Western Cape is famous for its coastline, and choosing a beach hotel allows you to get straight to the sand and the waves every morning. From budget-friendly lodges to five-star luxury, there is beach accommodation in Western Cape offers something for everyone – romantic beachfront guesthouses, bed and breakfasts and apartment-style hotels offer fantastic views and easy access to water-based activities and attractions.

Western Cape Beach Hotels for Families

Many of the beach hotels in Western Cape are designed with both adults and kids in mind. Outdoor swimming pools can be a big bonus, especially if the ocean waves are too rough for the younger travellers. Finding a hotel that offers childcare will allow adults to enjoy some quality time together, perhaps in the spa or over a gourmet meal. And if you’d prefer a quiet, secluded location you can also find accommodation a little further back from the coast, just a leisurely walk or a short drive from the beach.

Which Western Cape Beach Should I Choose?

Preekstoel Beach in West Coast National Park is wild and beautiful. It stretches for 25 kilometres and crashing waves roll in across its length. This is a great place for a long barefoot walk and also has a tranquil lagoon for swimming.

Isolated Noetzie Beach in Knysna tempts sunseekers with a secluded cove, while history enthusiasts flock to it to see the castles that overlook the ocean. Meanwhile, Pringle Bay in Overberg is known for its large sand dunes and is the perfect place for surfing, swimming and body boarding.

Beach Hotels for Every Budget

There’s plenty of Western Cape beach accommodation within each budget range. You can splash out on a full-service luxury hotel, or save money by booking a simple guesthouse or backpacker hostel. Whether you’re an adventure sport enthusiast, a family group or a couple, you can use Expedia’s search filters to find the perfect Western Cape beach hotel for you.
