There is no road between the resort and the waterfront, you can walk right from your front door, through the property and straight onto the beach. That is unless you stay in one of the Ocean View apartments, and then it’s only a hop, skip and a jump over some lush green lawn before sand hits your feet.
The shoreline in front of the resort has clean white sand and sparkling blue calm water. It’s a great beach for kids to splash, play, swim and build sand castles.
When we visited the resort there was a family further up the beach enjoying some fishing, and a group of friends watching the sunset with a picnic.

One of the features that struck me the most about Cape View Beach Resort was the design.
It is very well thought out, no space is wasted, therefore inside our holiday home it was comfortable and roomy.
There are connecting paths that take you around the resort, so you are not always walking on the road, which I appreciated with three energetic little boys running around! The chalet that we stayed in was very clean, modern, private, quiet and tastefully decorated.
