Actor Brian Blessed has described one South African destination as his heaven on earth.

The village of Fish Hoek is Brian Blessed’s idea of heaven on earth, a  revelation which could inspire people booking flights to South Africa later this year.

In an interview with the Daily Telegraph, the actor explained that his South African wife introduced him to the location and said that he was “immediately smitten” with the town.

“One thing I like about it is that it’s changed so little since I first started visiting years ago, it’s also very safe,” he said.

Among its attractions are its proximity to the Winelands, the varied wildlife and its Mediterranean climate, the star stated.

Brian Blessed – who is well-known for his film, TV and voice roles – recommended a restaurant on a beach called The Galley, which he stated serves “the tastiest fish I’ve ever eaten”.

South Africa is set to welcome thousands of football fans later this year when the World Cup kicks off on June 11th.

Fish Hoek could provide a way to escape from the crowds of Cape Town for a few days, should anyone travelling during the tournament need a break.
