About The Merry Crab

The Merry Crab is a delightful self-catering beach resort carved out of the Admiralty reserve which fringes the Indian Ocean.

It is favoured by birders, golfers, and couples wanting to escape the rat–race. While the studios, casitas and cabanas offer the utmost in privacy there is also the lapa, poolside pub and Potjie Boma for those who feel like company. Units are serviced daily (in the mornings) and all one needs to bring are beach towels. For groups who do not wish to self-cater we offer meals by arrangement.

Beach: Most unspoilt & prettiest beaches along the coast - boulders & rock pools for fishing, coral reef for crayfishing, sweeping bay for dolphin & whale watching, surfing/boat launching bay & all linked to make the best beach walk on our coastline.

Golf: We are situated within close proximity to three top golf courses: Southbroom (11km), San Lameer (7km) Wild Coast (10km)

Disappointed that tv in living room did not work. Also no cell phone signal at all nor WiFi.. but otherwise very good.

The place was clean and the kitchen utensils were sufficient for a family of five. the place is peaceful and there is privacy. the staff are friendly and always at the ready to help. but as guatengers driving to the coast for the first time, it was a long trip. it would be better to stay at least for over week, excluding travelling time.
