Sunday's weather was wonderful. I took a drive to Betty's Bay, a small coastal village on the east coast.
Another view across False Bay.
FULL SIZE IS BEST.

The beautiful stretch of coastline from Hangklip near Pringle Bay to Cape Point, known as the False Bay Coast, offers visitors a multitude of little hamlets and villages with myriads of art & craft shops, coffee shops, caf├ęs, restaurants, B&Bs, pubs, picnic spots and scenic lookout points to explore and enjoy. The scenic beauty of the area is a big draw card, as is the fact that the waters are warmer than along the trendier Atlantic coastline, making for enjoyable swimming experiences. Whale spotting during calving season is another highlight of a visit to False Bay and dolphins can be seen throughout the year.

False Bay was given its name by pioneering navigators who mistook the vast natural bay for Table Bay when seeking to replenish their supplies. In reality though, False Bay is the largest true bay along the South African coast and is considered to be one of the great bays of the world. Some of the more popular areas along the False Bay Coast include the historically rich naval village of Simonstown, the stunning beaches of Muizenberg and Fish Hoek and the quaint little fishing village of Kalk Bay. Visitors to the vibrant city of Cape Town will find a trip along the False Bay Coastline to be most worthwhile.
