Romance is a subjective term. What rocks the boat for one couple may leave another utterly unmoved. So perhaps it's best if we describe our criteria for selecting these 'romantic beach retreats'. Then you can see if this resonates with you...
Typically, we recommend beach resorts or hotels which are relatively small, with lots of charm and personal detail. Unless you are happy to be one of several honeymoon couples, these may not be the places that shout the loudest about special honeymoon rates. (Though they may be available).
These beach retreats may be quite remote and a little tricky to get to. But what's an hour or two of extra travelling versus five days of utter bliss afterwards?
Others may be tucked away coastal gems in little towns. Here, the joy is not just the expanse of beach but the tranquillity and authenticity of the experience.
However, we've also chosen some Cape Town beach retreats. These offer the winning mix of a romantic ambience and stunning beach location. Yet they are only a few minutes drive from all the sights and restaurants of one of the best-loved vibey cities in the world!
Special memories"I would like to thank you for the very full and comprehensive travel documents you put together for us – it made our trip so easy! The organisation was perfect and it was so helpful to have contact names for our hosts along the way! Our trip has certainly wetted our appetite for more holidays farther from home and other parts is SA. I have no doubt we’ll be returning one day! My overriding memory though is of the friendly people !” " Mr Mo Hemsley, UK
Seamless arrangements"We were often posting on Facebook during our travels and many of our friends were asking who arranged our trip, so don’t be surprised to get a few referrals. Again, thank you so much for your time and effort with our trip! " Ms Tammy
Great Recommendations"I am into the details and ask lots of questions and I got all the info that I needed (and more) very quickly, which enabled my review all of Cedarberg’s recommendations and check for alternatives. I am very pleased to say that I changed none and all of the recommendations were 1st class. " Mr Ian Crispin, UK
