Create an itinerary including Scarab Village
Along the Atlantic seaboard, Scarab Village represents a rocky stretch of sand next to a tranquil suburb nestled at the foot of Slangkop and Red Hill. The beach hosts thundering waves, making it well-known for surfing. Body boarding, kite surfing, kayaking, and windsurfing are also popular here. Visitors like the many rock pools and scenic windswept beach atmosphere. Take a dip or observe fisherman bringing their daily catch. The site offers minimal amenities; you'll find a couple of restaurants and a small shop here.

  • Time goes by rather quickly at this market, there is just so much to see and to chose from. We do the bulk of our christmas shopping at this market. The glass blower shop is a must visit.
