Get to Know West Coast

Apart from the unpretentious seaside villages along the Atlantic, the West Coast also offers majestic mountain ranges, wine valleys and wildflowers as far as the eye can see.

South Africa’s West Coast is 400 kilometres in length and forms a narrow strip along the Atlantic Ocean. The small seaside towns once lived in solely by local fishermen have become popular holiday destinations, with more sophisticated homes now dotting the coast. Inland, the landscape is covered with fields of canola that explode annually into carpets of vivid yellow. To the north, the awe-inspiring Cederberg mountain range draws countless hikers and campers, and further north still the Olifants River Wine Valley and dry Namaqualand complete this diverse coastline.

The two roads that take travellers from Cape Town into the region are the unremarkable N7 and R27, which despite their lack of scenic interest make access to the towns and natural beauty of the West Coast easy.
