Cape Town Sights

Kommetjie

Fodor's Review

A pleasant, somewhat isolated village, Kommetjie has a scenic 45-minute walk down Long Beach that leads to the wreck of the Kakapo, a steamship that ran aground on her maiden voyage in 1900. This is a surfer's paradise, with some really big waves, a few gentler breaks and for swimmers, a dangerous undertow. Because of a few muggings on Long Beach a couple years back, people generally walk here in groups or couples in the early mornings and at sundown.
