Benguela Cove is a destination that caters to the whole family, providing a synergy between family-friendly activities and a commitment to sustainability. Children can embark on a swashbuckling adventure at the Pirate Adventure Golf course, featuring 18 holes of challenging fun. And when the sun shines bright, the Splash Pad awaits, offering a refreshing escape with its array of water jets, sprays, and dumping buckets that guarantee hours of entertainment.

These initiatives minimise the estate’s environmental impact while setting a positive example for others to follow.

As South Africa’s wine tourism industry continues to evolve, Benguela Cove serves as a beacon for others, paving the way for a more sustainable, enriching, and family-friendly wine tourism landscape in South Africa and beyond.
