George lies at the foot of the Outeniqua Mountains, a short drive from the Garden Route coast. For keen golfers George is a must, as the town is home to South Africa’s premier golfing resort, Fancourt. Here you’ll find not one but two of the country’s top courses: The Links and Outeniqua. Also, around the corner in Herolds Bay is Oubaai – the first Ernie Els Signature course in South Africa.
Although not on the coast, George is within easy reach of a great selection of beaches. In town, the Outeniqua Transport Museum has a collection of steam trains, vintage cars, and a Power Van that takes an incredibly scenic rail route up into the mountains. Or, if you’d prefer to work for your views, then pick from one of the hiking and mountain biking trails.
