When planning a tailor-made South African Holiday, most people request Cape Town, the Western Cape Winelands, Hermanus, the Garden Route, and a Safari Experience in Kruger National Park or the Malaria Free Eastern Cape, but travellers rarely ask about The West Coast Peninsula.
An area renowned for its laid back atmosphere, spectacular scenery, and delicious seaside dining, South Africa’s West Coast is already a popular holiday destination for the locals, and if international travellers are looking for something a little bit different (i.e. charming fishing villages, the Cederberg Mountain Range, rich marine life, and rugged, windswept beaches), they will find it all right here.
The perfect South African holiday destination for those who love the great outdoors, dining alfresco, meeting new people, and escaping the rigours of daily life, the beautiful towns of Paternoster, Langebaan, Saldanha, St Helena Bay and Vredenburg tick all the right boxes.
The West Coast Peninsula really does belong in every South African Travel Itinerary, and as it is just a 90 minute drive from Cape Town, everyone should add a night or two on the windswept and wonderful Cape West Coast.
