Sandboarding in Bettys Bay

  • About 2 hours


Come and enjoy a day out in the sun for an eventful day full of Adrenalin and laughter on the dunes overlooking Betty’s Bay and the Atlantic ocean with some breathtaking scenery and lots of fun.

The Sand Dune in Betty`s Bay is considered amongst sandboarding professionals as one of the best dunes in Africa. With spectacular views from the dune it’s hard not to feel like you in another world. The Dune has an estimated height of 230 Meters and makes for an impressive run down hill.

Rest assured we do however not start with you at the top but rather gradually work up the dune as your experience improves. We also find that most guests prefer to sit on the sandboard compared to standing. Sandboarding is a true adventure experience. A standard Sandboarding session is +- 2 Hours and we recommend you bring water and sunscreen as the dune can get hot. An average level of fitness is required.

Stony Point Penguin Colony is also just a stone throw away from the Sandboarding dune so why not pay this amazing site a visit. We can cater for any amount of guests on the Dune and we require a minimum of two.


Meet up with us at the dune in Betties Bay.

Our guides will provide you with training and safety on the dune. Boarding is a wonderful activity as its both fun and extreme (depending on your skills as you progress) Once our training session has finished we will start off with a smaller section of the dune. We will progress Higher and Higher up on the dune as your skills improve.

The norm is to stand on the Sandboard as you descend down the dune but if you prefer to rather sit we will show you the ropes as this is also a lot of fun if your balance seems to get the better of you.

Sandboarding is ideal for individuals but also extremely entertaining for larger groups and team building options. We visit the dunes once a day and individuals or small groups can join at short notice.

Please note we don’t take a sandboard per person we normally have a good amount of boards we rotate. The reason for this is not only does it minimize the effect on the dune from an environmental perspective but it's also a safety factor.

Please note – rain does affect our sandboarding. Please contact us the morning of your booking to ensure that the dune is still operational. If in the event of bad weather we will refund or move your booking to a more suitable date. The choice is yours…

Did the zipline at Constantia neck and what a eye opener. Situated over a secret valley the views alone are worth the excursion. Guides Zuma and Nzo were professional and so compassionate. Any fears were allayed by their guidance and they kept it fun and safe. Definitely better in a group and a team building and bonding experience of note. Accessible adventure anybody can do. Highly recommend.
