WHERE TIME SLOWS DOWN
WELCOME TO HONDEKLIP BAY
Hondeklip Bay (Afrikaans: Hondeklipbaai, which translates as dog stone bay) is a coastal village in the Namakwa district of the Northern Cape province of South Africa. It lies about 95 km south west of the district capital Springbok.
This village was originally used as a harbour to export copper ore from the mines around Springbok but was later surpassed by Port Nolloth, which had a safer harbour as well as a railway line.
Today Hondeklip Bay is a popular regional holiday destination and serves the fishing and diamond-mining community.
“In still moments by the sea life seems large-drawn and simple. It is there we can see into ourselves.”

Very clean and modern. Personal service from Petro. Nice view. Have slept in all the other establishments in Hondeklipbaai, but this is by far the best place to sleep in Hondeklipbaai.

Wat ‘n belewenis.
Dit was nou regtig baie spesiaal. Ons het baie lekker gebly en die Pondokke sien ons beslis weer, maar die keer heelwat langer. Daar is regtig niks kort in die eenheid nie en ons het dit baie geniet. Baie dankie aan Petro wat die verblyf so aangenaam gemaak het, sy is regtig ‘n spesiale mens.
The Honne Pondokkies are quaint, comfortable and clean self-catering wooden cabins that sleep up to four people set amongst a ‘beach’ of seashells a two-minute walk from the harbour and some of the towns great little restaurants, which, despite their rustic appearance certainly “deliver the goods”.
In my opinion, a visit to Hondeklipbaai is a must and an ideal opportunity to kick back and chill. We will be back!

Fantastic owners, nothing to much trouble, great room, great location
Hondeklipbaai is ‘n baie interessante plekkie. Oulike karakters wat ‘n mens daar raakloop, anderster lewensverhale te vertel. Vir iemand van Noord-Wes is dit heerlik om die see te hoor. Ons het lekker daar fietsgery.
The service from beginning to end was very professional. We stayed in the camp site and later upgraded to the chalets. It’s everything we hoped for. The ocean view , the beach a walk away ,warm weather , restaurants , peace , quiet , and yes ,time really stood still . All facilities in good condition and super clean . We will definitely be back .
Mooi, rustig met pragtige uitsig oor die see.
Ons het in Pondokkie 2 gebly en was baie bly oor die lekker stoep. Lieflike speelarea vir as daar kinders is. Voel veilig daar. Lekker naby om strand toe te loop. Ons is baie hartlik ontvang en dadelik tuis laat voel. Lieflike 2 en suite-slaapkamers in Pondokkie 2.
