It’s a fantastic family outing in this small (they have just around 3000 people) seaside village, known as an excellent surfing and crayfishing spot. Aside from enjoying a browse around the Christmas craft market or indulging in food and drinks at the beer tent, visitors also get to have a taste of Kommetjie’s quirky side with off-the-wall contests, like the Surf Showdown Competition.
