More info about Cape West Coast
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.
