often be seen at play along the Dana Bay coastline. Dana Bay is famous because it's
the only north-facing beach in South Africa. It is situated close to the town of
George, and is only about 15 minutes away from the George Airport.

coast consists of golden-brown beaches that offer safe swimming and good fishing.

and may even land a musselcracker or two.

steenbok, and some bushbuck. The Dana Bay area is also home to a variety of birds.
