Chilling Churchhaven

This past weekend saw me taking a mini-roadtrip with some friends out to Churchhaven on the West Coast. It was my first time and I had heard it was by a big lagoon, with wonderfully warm water, so I was pretty excited and eager for the experience.


We woke up bright and early, so that we could enjoy a full day at the beach. And when we got there, the first thing I realised was the size of this lagoon, being much bigger than I imagined; and though it was more shallow than I thought it would be, it’s beauty took my breath away… the pictures don’t do it justice.

There was lots of swimming, eating, ball tossing, picture snapping, drinking, braaing, banana-peel playing and more eating and drinking. We even had time for a nap, and by late afternoon it was high tide and the water was at a nice depth [those still as warm as ever] and we enjoyed a good swim before calling it a day just before the sunset.


A definite must see next time you’re in Cape Town; it’s about an hour and a half drive from the city centre and well worth it.
