The marvels and delights of the Garden Route and Cape Overberg region are numerous and dazzling; because of this travellers need the perfect stopover point from which to explore the supreme majesty of these natural spectacles. The tiny town of Malgas just 30 minutes from the Western Cape town of Swellendam is ideal for these purposes. But to utilize it solely as an overnighter is doing it an injustice as Malgas has a certain charm and warmth that is always so evident in country towns. Coupled with its immense beauty and overwhelming natural splendour, it soon becomes obvious why many regard this as one of the Garden Route’s best-kept secrets. Located along the banks of the Breede River and blessed with immense beauty, Malgas has a distinctly idyllic ambience that makes it hard not to fall in love with it immediately. It is a genuine nature lover’s paradise especially terrific for the favoured pastimes of fishing and bird watching. Fishing, in particular, is excellent as the Breede River estuary is fish-laden sustaining an abundant variety of species including the Spotted Grunter, Carrick, and Cob – ideal for avid anglers. The estuary is also the scene for some fantastic bird watching experiences as it attracts the likes of fish owls, ospreys, fish eagles, and kingfishers. Attractions in close proximity to Malgas include top draw cards such as the Breedekloof Wine Route, De Hoop Nature Reserve, and the Agulhas National Park further emphasizing the wonderful location the town is blessed with. Whether you’re staying for a few days or just overnight, the tiny Garden Route town of Malgas promises to leave you with many fantastic memories.
