Baywater Village

Situated on the shores of Swartvlei Lake in the heart of the Garden Route, Baywater Village offers idyllic surroundings and excellent facilities. It is ideal for a fun-filled; activity packed family holiday or an easygoing, peaceful getaway. In addition to the resort's location, which makes it the perfect base from which to explore, the Garden Route offers many treasures.

The Resort property provides for numerous recreational activities and a host of water sports. Its close proximity to a number of beautiful beaches combined with the opportunity to enjoy some of the area's top tourist hot spots make this a perfect holiday destination.

Although our resort offers everything your heart may desire, a short distance in either direction will prove to be a great experience. This area has many treasures to offer: magnificent trails, beaches, lakes, or ferry trips on the Knysna Lagoon. There is fishing, local breweries, excellent restaurants, craft centres, museums and art galleries. For the more adventurous type there is abseiling, canoeing, horse-riding, four-wheeling through the forest and lots of hidden gems that will amaze you. All this within 50 kilometres of the resort in either direction.
