We have done it a couple of times now, and pandemic or no pandemic, we decided that a drive up to Langebaan to view the Spring flowers in the West Coast National Park should be a perfectly safe outing to undertake, given that you are pretty much isolated in your own car for most of the time. As luck would have it, Chantelle’s folks just so happened to be staying over at Club Mykonos around the time that we wanted to head up, the perfect opportunity to turn what is usually just a day trip outing into a little more of an adventure.
The drive up the West Coast was its usual scenic self, and as per usual we popped into the Weskus Padstal to stock up on some snacks, only to discover that clearly the place is now under new management because all the gaudy colour and bric-a-brac touches have been stripped away to reveal something far more refined and dare I say it, classy underneath. Very nice. Anyway, if you aren’t familiar with Club Mykonos in Langebaan, this fairly large Greek-themed seaside holiday resort has been operating since 1988, and now encompasses something like 386 self-catering units painted in the iconic white of the real Mykonos (with an added splash of exciting color here and there).
Club Mykonos is a fully fledged family resort with a ridiculous amount of activities on offer. There is the private beach, the swimming pools, the tennis courts, the astroturf, the games room, the active adventures, the mini golf, the spa, the squash courts, and even a casino for the moms and dads who want to let off some steam. In terms of eating options there are numerous restaurants available, with many clustered around the resort’s beautiful marina area. In short, this really is a wonderful family holiday resort, and as you might then imagine, a pretty popular one to boot.
We enjoyed a wonderfully comfortable evening there, the kids enjoyed the beach, we took a bit of a photo walk around the resort, and settled in to a lovely meal at the newly opened Kapstadt Brauhaus. So just a taste of Mykonos then, but enough to leave the girls wanting more!
The next morning we all woke up nice and refreshed and set off on our mission to see the blooming flowers at Postberg in the West Coast National Park.
