<b>Location and Security</b>
The Grotto Bay Private Nature Reserve borders on the Cape West Coast and forms part of the Cape West Coast Biosphere.

This private coastal reserve is 417 ha, is gated, and has 24hours manned security.
It offers a relaxed nature loving lifestyle, surrounded by unspoiled shoreline and Fynbos with uninterrupted sea view and spectacular sunsets.

The nature reserve and coastline form an integral conservation unit for the Renosterveld and Sand Fynbos vegetation type as well as for a number of wildlife including – Ostrich, Duiker, Steenbok, Lynx; and many types of birdlife including the rare Black Oyster Catcher, Black Harrier, Malachite Sunbird, and many others – and this is right on your doorstep.
Some of the many beautiful sites viewed from the deck are -
<ul><li>the romping and splashing of the Southern Right Whale just beyond the shore-break, on their way down and up the Atlantic coastline</li>
<li>the unbelievable unen ding streaming dark lines of Cape Cormorant flying down the coast, their wingtips lightly brushing the sea surface.</li></ul>
The Grotto Bay seaside is less than a 2 minute walk the property along a well maintained path, accessed by a private pedestrian side gate.

As the Grotto Bay Private Nature Reserve borders directly onto the West Coast, there is very limited public access to this entire seaside area – with only one public access situated on the far left boundary of the reserve.
