Kommetjie is famous for it's surfing, Cray fishing and bird life, the name comes from "Little Bowl" the sheltered natural tidal pool which provides holidaymakers with safe bathing. This rustic seaside village is located between Slangkop Mountain and the Atlantic Ocean. Lord Charles Somerset erected a hunting lodge here around 1815 which is now known as Honeysuckle Cottage. The first beach houses were built in 1900, before that holiday makers camped in the Milkwood groves.
