This five-bedroom oceanfront beach lodge, is ideal for honeymoon couples or small families, seeking an eco-beach holiday and immersive coastal nature experience. 

Morukuru Beach Lodge is situated at Koppie Alleen, in one of Africa’s most beautiful coastal reserves, the De Hoop Nature Reserve, which lies just South of Swellendam, along the Whale Coast, in the Overberg region. The Overberg is characterized by quaint towns, a blossoming wine industry and delicious local dishes. The 36 000 hectare De Hoop conservation area is a World Heritage Site, comprising rich biodiversity and over 50 kilometres of pristine coastline. 

The five-bedroom villa can be booked per suite, or on an exclusive-use basis. It is an off-the-grid idyll for couples or small families who are seeking a pristine, private beach house in South Africa.
