Perfect for anyone who wants to relax, unwind and enjoy a restful beach break in a safe, happy and friendly environment.

Take an early morning stroll to the beach, armed with a steaming cup of coffee or tea to watch the ocean come alive with the most spectacular sunrises. More often than not the dolphins will delight you with their playful antics and the whales are a regular spectacular sight at Anstey’s Beach.

Relax by the poolside in our tropical garden, or go for a late afternoon swim in the sea or walk on the beach.

Ansteys is unique in that we encourage and enjoy a great cosmopolitan atmosphere – international travelling backpackers, South African holidaymakers, business people, contract workers – all get along and it makes for a good, happy mix!

We look forward to welcoming you! – Tash, Rudy and the Anstey’s crew
