What to do in Kommetjie

Original Source for Article – https://www.capepointroute.co.za/seeit-kommetjie.php


Kommetjie, which means “Little Bowl” is named after the circular bowl-like sea basin ”Die Kom” which forms the heart of this quiet rustic seaside village. Kommetjie is not a drive- through kind of place; it’s a stop and experience it town.

Kommetjie itself is known for being one of Cape Town’s surfing & kite surfing hot spots and has world class windsurfing with one of the biggest drops in the Cape Peninsula. Kommetjie is the place where Crayfish (Cape Rock Lobster) is King and it is also famed as a great bird watching area. If you’re interested in legends (or even just sensational views) then get to the top of South Africa’s tallest cast iron lighthouse – the Slangkoppunt Lighthouse. Take a tour and climb to the top to see Cape Point Nature Reserve and Hout Bay .

Along Kommetjie road, you will notice camels at Imhoff Farm – you can ride them, or just stop for tea, country produce and a variety of crafts. Kids can enjoy the farmyard and snake park. Look out for Masiphumelele where you experience an interactive walk- in township tour and Ocean View on the opposite side of the road, which also offers insightful walking tours of the fishing community that lives there.
