The saying ‘a stranger is just a friend that you haven’t met’ epitomises the West Coast. This area is celebrated for its hospitable people and unspoiled wild beauty.

The white sand beaches and clear waters of the Langebaan Lagoon offer plenty of adventure activities. The protected waters and consistent southeasterly breezes are known around the world as a sailing, windsurfing and kitesurfing mecca. 

On calm days, kayakers and stand up paddleboarders explore the vast coast line, while anglers pit their wit against steenbras, stumpnose and cob. 

The West Coast is not only a waterman’s playground. Landlubbers can enjoy golfing, mountain biking, quad biking, horseback riding and paragliding.

Birdwatchers view over 300 species of birds in the West Coast National park, where wild flowers provide hikers with a seasonal display of colour during August and September. 

Take a road trip further north to Paternoster for a sea kayak tour or scuba dive in the nearby wrecks; enjoy 4x4 rides in Klein Tafelberg or crisscross the dunes on a quad bike; paraglide in the Dasklip Pass, home of the world championships; hike or climb the Cederberg Mountains or skydive from a world renowned drop zone. The new Cape Namibia Route offers a unique combination of activities. Touch dinosaur fossils, dive in kelp forests, play in the snow, revel in the cacophony of hundreds of thousands of seals and gannets, immerse yourself in the spectacle of the second-biggest canyon on earth; kayak in white and blue water and eyeball black-maned lions – all on one route. Best of all, it’s a year-round route, with new activities unfolding as the seasons turn

Glorious sunshine days make this a superb outdoor destination. The West Coast simply has more sunshine, more space and more soul.
