Characterised by its laid-back lifestyle, quaint fishing villages, sea-side holiday homes and whitewashed walls, the West Coast is a true South African gem reflecting a unique and delightful side of our diverse culture. Seafood dishes are the order of the day in any town you visit, and you can expect authentic meals, packed with flavour and prepared with love. Think smoked snoek, sultry crayfish, mussel curry and more. In the heart of the West Coast, the Langebaan lagoon offers azure blue waters and water sports aplenty and is one of the crown jewels of the West Coast National Park. It is in the Park that you’ll be met with a sight to behold in the spring, when sections of the park are blanketed with a sea of colour as wildflowers spring to life between July and September, after the rains.
The West Coast and wider Cederberg region is certainly an undiscovered treasure, even by locals, and you’re sure to find a cozy relaxed little village to kick back and take in the fresh sea air.
