Otis Redding once sang about sitting in the morning sun watching the tide roll in and here at Onrus Beach is the opportunity to take in so much more than just the tides. Hugging the golden sands of this family friendly beach this home affords you the pleasures of watching the whales frolicking year-round from your patio, or the dolphins rehearsing their repertoires, magical sunrises and sunsets, fynbos and grass terraces.
No road separates the home from the ocean, offering safety and privacy and a feeling of oneness with the sea. For the more adventurous, besides swimming and sun-bathing, Onrus beach is very well-known for good surfing. Lobster and alikreukel (giant periwinkle) are abundant, and safe diving spots are right in front of the house. Beautiful natural rock pools offer splendid private bathing and picnicking opportunities. In close proximity are a shopping mall (3 km), several specialty shops, weekend markets, restaurants and local craft beer breweries.
