i don't know which beach you are referring to but you are within walking distance from the beach. You drive past the lighthouse to Suiderstrand to get to the chalets.It is in the area of "Pietie se huis" and Blue Bay(a nice safe protected bay for swimming).The chalets are very nice. :thumbs_up:

Thanks Tiko. I meant just the waters edge really. I wasn't sure if they had a view of the waves or were just buried in the fynbos.

WARNING!

If anybody should get the idea of visiting Agulhas National Park as a day visitor, forget about it. Only overnight visitors are allowed in :evil:

The Agulhas National Park starts at the lighthouse and the whole area from there to Suiderstrand is open for day visitors.The area from Suiderstrand to the chalets are not open to day visitors.If you want to you can walk along the beach to the chalet area,no restrictions there.

We've just come back from the new rest camp at Agulhas and were blown away by its position and all the things to do in the area - fishing, hiking, lighthouse, photographing shipwreck close inshore, etc. People on the Wild magazine blog have been bitching about the cost, but in all honesty I'm not sure why they're picking on Agulhas because it's not really far out of the normal SANParks pricing category (think Kgalgadi's wilderness camps, for instance), specially when you compare with how beautiful, well-equipped and just plain classy these chalets are. I was impressed: for more about them, check out http://roxannereid.weebly.com/1/post/20 ... tacle.html

I am going to spend 3 nights there over the Easter weekend, so I am looking forward to that.

I'm sure you'll love them, Greg. It's a perfect place for an Easter hideaway - I'm jealous!

We've just built a cottage in Suiderstrand and I am wanting to get to know the area better and especially the Agulhas National Park as my family and I will be staying there a lot over the coming years.
I was trying to work out the position of the Lagoon Guest House - is this it on the Western edge of Suiderstrand Bay?

The GPS coordinates on this page don't seem to make sense for it, but then neither do they seem right for the Southernmost Tip either. Are they wrong or is Google Maps messing me about?

This definitely looks like Lagoon House (it used to be called Pietie se Huis so some locals may still refer to it like that). Good luck with your house at Suiderstrand; it's a stunning location with a national park right on your doorstep.

How far is it from the Lighthouse to the new chalets and is the road in good condition?

Ah - then that would be it, because the picture is of Pietie se Punt. Thanks. (Also to you, Micetta).

Little disappointed with what I've seen of ANP thus far - seems to be rather inaccessible unless you're actually staying within it. But as you say, we're very much surrounded by it, so I'm sure we'll be exploring what we can.
