Built around 1915 Whaleback Cottage was the first holiday cottage built in the village, hence the superb position. This rock cottage on the sea’s edge overlooks “Little Billy Bay”, and has superb views of the sea, beach and indigenous bush. The book “Cry The Beloved Country” was written here by Alan Paton in 1946. Whaleback offers fully equipped and serviced accommodation for a large family.

"What a wonderful "little" cottage by the sea. Awesome family holiday with our dogs, children, grandchildren & friends. We loved staying right on the beach. Thank you." - R. Walker,
