Peninsula Region

For many the Cape West Coast Peninsula (Saldanha Bay Municipal Region) typifies the West Coast with its quaint fishing villages, sea-side resorts and ever popular lagoon. It lies south of the Berg River mouth and includes the West Coast National Park, stretching inland to Hopefield.

The harbour of Saldanha and administrative centre of Vredenburg are within sight of each other and are both major contributors to the economical well-being of the West Coast. Fishing and watersports are popular attractions throughout the region. The coastal towns in the region boast rocky and sandy bays, beaches and an abundance of seafood. Boardsailing, windsurfing, sea kayaking, diving and angling, as well as whale watching in season are very popular.

The playground of the Cape West Coast Peninsula is undoubtably the Langebaan Lagoon. This natural watersport haven, with its sandy beaches and calm waters also borders the West Coast National Park. There are myriads of restaurants and accommodation establishments on the banks of the lagoon. Langebaan is only minutes away from the Greek styled Club Mykonos Resort with its casino and ocean yacht marina.
