What a great find - what I would only describe as a five star B&B with a great view of the ocean from your room, a great breakfast and lovely people running it - I look forward to our next stay although I don't think it will be for a while now!

Everything about this place is just perfect, the beach, the view, the very tasteful interior, the peace, the service, no words to do it justice. It is kept simple and very elegant, so as not to disturb the magnificent setting.

We stayed at On the Beach last September and as it was so good then we returned, this time with our daughter. My husband and I had the same room as before, whilst my daughter was upstairs with a seaview. From our room you can step straight out onto the deck where there are sun loungers plus steps leading down...

We stayed in room 4 - which is top right looking out to sea. An absolutely amazing place - very high quality rooms and great staff. They could have not been more helpful. A home from home. Thank you! Having said all this I have no idea why TripAdvisor wants me to say more!

We came to South Africa to celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary having had our honeymoon here in 1971. A very different South Africa then! On The Beach was wonderful, a good welcome on our arrival for an 8 night stay in a stunning suite (No4) . Each morning we counted the beachcombers at 9am. One day we got to 20...
