The Baths Natural Hot Springs are another wonderful family friendly location with self-catering accommodation, a restaurant, rock pools with naturally warm spring water, and a warm and cold pool.
If visiting Lamberts Bay, pop in at Lamberts Bay Tourism – the best place to find out who to book with and where to go. One of the top accommodation places is Arendzicht self-catering accommodation which is located on the Lamberts Bay beach.
“We created Kids Month as we realize how pricey it can be to get away as a family these days, but that South Africans do love to explore and get out there to experience our rich tourism offerings. The deals set up for Kids Month will help families to do exactly this,” says Carmen Lerm, founder and CEO of West Coast Way.
