Located between Yzerfontein and Langebaan on the R27, the West Coast National Park, is a top choice for travellers making their way up the West Coast.
With its sun-soaked shores, charming fishing villages, and endless blue skies, it’s easy to see why ‘Die Weskus is die beskus’.
The real magic is that West Coast National Park is super accessible and just a half’s drive from Cape Town (and it’s airport). It’s great for a sneaky weekend getaway if you’ll be in the city for a while and if you’re not short on time, there is also plenty to do and see en-route.
Stop off in Bloubergstrand at the Blue Peter Hotel for a pizza paired with views of Table Mountain, or head to the sleepy little harbour town of Yzerfontein for some fresh ‘vis en tjips’ (fish and chips).
Since most of the West Coast National Park roads are tarred, it's pretty easy to get around and you won’t need a fancy 4x4 to get the most out of your time there.
