on the Cape West Coast
is about 45 minutes drive from Cape Town
on the R27 route. It has retained its seaside tranquility associated with seaside accommodation
and is used by holiday
makers in search of the sun, who return over again to their favourite B&B or self-catering guest house
. Despite its peaceful ambience, it is home to commercial fishermen who catch snoek, yellowtail and crayfish. Yzerfontein boasts Sixteen Mile Beach - a seemingly endless stretch of sandy shore towards the West Coast Nature Reserve. Sea Birds, penguins and flamingoes are to be seen from Dassen Island inland towards this National Park that stretches to the Postberg Nature Reserve where the indigenous Spring wild flowers are seen over the fields.
Experience the nearby Darling Wild flower Show
in the 3rd week of September or book for the unique theatrical experience of the VoorkamerFest
in Darling 4 - 6 Sept.
