The Ark B&B

Relax and unwind; the peaceful and tranquil small seafront village of Pearly Beach is situated 180 km east of Cape Town. Seemingly endless unspoiled white beaches, dispersed by rocky outcrops with clear and calm rock pools, stretch in both directions. The sea and mountain views are spectacular.

The whale watching from the balcony is excellent. In the evening, gaze at the dazzling array of stars and maybe even witness the Milkyway.

Among a large variety of birds, the endangered African black oystercatcher nests here. Unique wildlife experiences are to bve had here, especially from July to January when the southern right whales come to our shores to mate and calve. Dolphins can also be seen frequently.

Along the seafront and in the nearby mountains you can admire a stunning variety of fynbos plants, for which the Cape region of South Africa is world famous. In the spring, August to October, the wild flowers put on a beautiful show.

The Ark is only a stone's throw away from the beautiful beach. The guest accommodation consists of three bedrooms; two double en-suite rooms and one family room with a private bathroom and a comfortable lounge. Tea and coffee facilities are available.

  • "As good as new"

    21 October 2013

    "We felt as good as new after a three day stay at The Ark. A stone's throw from the ocean, whales as far as the eye could see, peace and tranquility. Our host, Steve, made a special effort to provide all the info we needed about surroundings and served a delightful breakfast every morning. Highly recommended."

  • "Great Accomodation"

    11 August 2009

    "Steve was an awesome host - he is very informative but knows when to leave you alone. We had 2 great evenings at The Ark. Pearly Beach is a wonderful destination - lots to do including long walks on the beach, fishing (some beautiful Galjoen and Witsteenbras waters), whale watching (including a white whale while we were there), lots of birds (including the oyster catchers and franklins) as well as a million stars at night!"
