Situated to the South West of Cape Town and home to a large fleet of fishing vessels and water sport enthusiasts. Saldanha Bay is the largest, natural harbour in South Africa which consists of a spectacular, never-ending coastline.
A breakwater built in the late 1970’s extends over 1.5km long and joins the mainland with Marcus Island. Jacobsbaai, another breathtaking bay, mere kilometers north of Saldanha Bay is often referred to as "Namaqualand by the sea" due to its substantial blossoming of flora in the during the Spring months. The bay and its islands can be intimately explored by way of a boating trip or fishing excursion. With these majestic shorelines, it comes as no surprise to learn that Southern Right Wales pay homage to Saldanha Bay during the late winter.
For the outdoor enthusiast, hiking trails at Oranjevlei and at the Naval Base are a must see. Other things to see in Saldanha Bay include the French Huguenot Memorial, Doc's Cave, the Breakwater and Cummings Grave. With its multitude of peninsulas, sandy bays, pristine beaches and an abundance of seafood, crayfish, fish, mussels and abalone, Saldanha Bay is one calendar event that needs to be attended.
