Guests may choose to explore the Cape surrounds or the Winelands. They may also choose to enjoy lunch on the Tintswalo Atlantic deck, or share cooking tips with the executive chef in the open-plan kitchen before an intimate dinner, watching the sun set behind the Sentinel.
Tintswalo Atlantic’s accommodation is on a bed and breakfast basis and both lunch and dinner should be booked in advance, as this is prepared in accordance with guests’ personal culinary preferences.
A massage therapist can be arranged for private treatments in the comfort of the suites.
The surrounding mountain reserve has a multitude of paths and walkways for visitors to enjoy. Guests may also wander along the pebbled beach (the nearest sandy beach is in Hout Bay)
A few suggested excursions are listed below:
