Kraalbaai - Pure magic
« on: January 14, 2009, 12:56:30 am »
If you have never been to Kraalbaai before, the time has come.

Its in a secluded bay in the Langebaan lagoon nestled below Postberg and to me its just pure magic. Unfortunately, a lot of people have now 'discovered' the place and it seems to become very popular, especially because the water is a bit warmer than what you can find opposite the ridge in the Atlantic.

Its part of the Weskus Nasionale Park and I believe it is biker friendly. Less than an hour (two for those on KLR's) outside Cape Town. 

Here are a few shots recenly taken the day after new years:





the well known Pulpit:

Has always been one of my favourites - specificially if I am not in the mood for Camps Bay.

The nice thing about WCNP is that because of the long lagoon area it can take a lot of people without feeling overcrowded. Also people have to pay to get in, so nobody gets "bussed" in like on our local beaches here

Solo travellers should not be considered unsociable, they are expressing their independence until they choose to do otherwise.

I always pull in there on the skuitjie to take a break from fishing or get out the wind. Lekker to float gently & down a tube or two before slagging the fish again. :)

Jip the same here. Usually go there with the boat.
But I skip the fishing part, to boring for me.

As jy die pad om die lagoon vat dan stop die teer daar by Kraalbaai.

Het iemand al aangery op die grondpad stuk?
