Geography and History
Although the concentration of permanent residents is increasing, over half the houses still belong to holiday-makers and people coming down for the weekend.
Pearly Beach is a popular angling spot, and on some weekends is inundated with those wanting to catch the biggest fish.
About 5 km off the coast from Pearly Beach is Dyer Island, the easternmost of the chain of seabird islands that is home to a colony of African Penguins.
There is a wide variety of accommodation option available from Bed and Breakfasts to Self Catering units.
On the inland side of Pearly Beach there are several plants species which are endemic to a small area of lime soils, and is one of the greatest botanical hotspots in the world.
In season Perlemoen (Abalone) and crayfish diving is a popular sport. Apart from fishing, the beaches are perfect for long walks and cycles.
There are many restaurants on offer to suit every visitors budget. There is a great selection of restaurants, coffee shops and pubs to choose from!
Pearly Beach has a thriving business community and provides a wide range of goods and services to its residents as well as surrounding communities.
