Dana Bay began as a farmland for grazing livestock in 1821 and in 1972 the land was bought to create a retirement village. The planning was done with conservation in mind; buildings were designed and erected around the movement of the animals and dispersion of the fynbos seeds. Creating an eco friendly piece of heaven on the Garden Route.
