Kleinmond is another one of those picturesque little coastal towns that lie sandwiched between the sea and the mountains along the R44 Clarence Drive coastal route, lying within the bounds of what is known as the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve. Well known for its lagoon and Blue Flag beach, its in season whale watching potential, its wild horses that roam the marshlands at the Rooisands Nature Reserve, and of course its fishing, Kleinmond is naturally then quite popular with both holiday makers and tourists alike.
I’m quite fond of the 3 km or so long Kleinmond Coastal Walkway, an established walkway that takes you all the way from Kleinmond’s small working harbour and its adjacent Harbour Road waterfront leisure development, right up to the Bot River estuary and Kleinmond’s famous beach. The sea is always visible beneath you, the emblematic granite and fynbos of the Overstrand is all around you, and indeed, this is just one of the prettiest walkways to stroll along and breathe in the invigorating sea air.
For this particular outing Jessica, Emily and I managed to convince my brother Ryan to tag along for a walk along this jewel of a path, and yes, as expected, we once again stopped at the turn around point for our customary soft serve ice creams at the little Sunset Harbour Cafe!
Always an enjoyable way to stretch the legs!
