A top surfing location, Kommetjie offers an assortment of reefs that hold a very big swell. Outer Kommetjie is a left point out from Slangkop Lighthouse, at the southern end of the village. Inner Kommetjie is a more protected, smaller left, with lots of kelp (only at high tide). They both work best with a southeasterly or southwesterly wind.

Township Tours

Awol Tours can arrange cycling tours around the Kommetjie township of Masiphumelele (its name is Xhosa for ‘we will succeed’).


The Cape Camino hiking trail runs through this area, with sections leading from Muizenberg to Simon's Town, from there to Scarborough and onto Noordhoek.
