More info about Yzerfontein

Yzerfontein is in the Western Cape Province, a tiny tranquil seaside town on the West coast of South Africa about 80 kms north of Cape Town.

The unspoilt fishing village is on a rocky cape overlooking a harbour on the Atlantic Ocean. With endless pristine beaches, it is famous for having the longest uninterrupted sandy beach on South Africa’s coast.

The Sixteen Mile Beach is like a surreal dream, huge, wild and disappearing away into the distance. The views of the Atlantic sea are especially beautiful from the West Coast, shifting from purple to deep blue and turquoise.

In recent years, Yzerfontein has transformed from a small fishing village into a prime investment area. It is conveniently near Cape Town , the wine farms of the Darling area,  and the windsurfing mecca of Langebaan.

Yzerfontein has wonderful holiday homes and is a magnet for fishermen, birders and surfers. It is great for whale and dolphin viewing. However, Yzerfontein is still rural enough to see the occasional ostrich wander through the tiny town or a dassie sunning itself on the road.

The climate is mediterranean, influenced by the Benguela current.  Summers are warm  (average 27 degrees) , and winters cool (average 13 degrees.). Summers are dry, bright and sunny,  and rain falls in winter. The vegetation is Cape Dune Strandveld and Coastal Sand Fynbos.

Further along the road are National Monuments, the two historic lime kilns used by the Dutch East India Company in the late 1600s to produce lime for whitewashing walls. The road continues past salt pans to the north before reaching the wonderfully clean and bright... Show more
