Situated in the bohemian village of Kalk Bay, ‘Lymehaven’ is truly the place to be! We are a self-catering boutique backpackers that sleeps 10 people only, making it cozy and welcoming and the ideal place to make friends and explore.
Summer or winter, this trendy and eclectic historical sea side village is a must visit for your Cape Town tour! Browse the many interesting and arty shops, many of them up narrow lanes. Enjoy a selection of vibrant restaurants and take your pick of no less than 5 beaches and 5 tidal pools, within easy walking distance! During the whale season you can even watch whales playing right in front of your eyes! Kalk Bay is also a highly regarded surfing spot. There are mountain walks and cave exploring expeditions and you can also visit our protected colony of African, Jackass penguins as well as Cape Point and other famous tourist spots.
On the southern suburbs train line, the historic Kalk Bay station is only three minutes walk away. The train runs between Simonstown (another must-visit historic navy village only three stops away) and Cape Town city central – making it easy and convenient to visit all the other exciting spots in Cape Town, such as Table Mountain, the Slave Museum, Waterfront, Company Gardens, planetarium, Robben Island and many more!
