Farm cottages are great -especially with swimming pools or mountain streams.
The small casino and the sea food restaurant at the beach front. The national parks as well.
Darling, Paternoster, Jacobsbaai, Yzerfontein, West Coast National Park and Langebaan.
In springtime the drive through all the towns and villages enjoying the flowers. The West Coast National Park offered tranquil accommodation, glorious colour, great viewpoints over the Lagoon and the sea shore. Both the fauna and the flora were a constant delight.

Loved the river, the ocean, the fishing trawlers, the millions of birds coming home in the evening and the friendliness of locals. The closeness to other coastal towns.
Gorgeous fishing villages and dramatic coastline.

The West Coast region of the Western Cape Province is one of the least developed areas in South Africa, however, it has much to offer the visitor. This coastal expanse stretches from the Cape Farms area in the south to roughly 400km northward to the Northern Cape Province boundary.
The West Coast remained largely untouched due to the lack of rivers and lakes, however, it is rich in minerals, has natural harbours, excellent surfing spots and an abundance of shellfish. Many of the fisherman’s cottages in quaint coastal villages are being snapped up by investors and the West Coast is growing rapidly.
The area was originally used as grazing grounds for cattle and in 1701, a military outpost was established to protect the farmers from marauding cattle thieves. The outpost has remained as part of a working farm, first as dairy producing, and now a treasured wine estate.

For a more down to earth experience there are guest houses. Less expensive than hotels, they offer a more homey environment, as well as more privacy. Converted from a private house it’s a much gentler environment and for those with furry friends, there are also pet friendly options. They are usually well situated with shops and places of interest nearby. Being so small it offers a much more personal and intimate attention to it’s upkeep, leaving you with a more polished and homely experience.
