Western Cape DestinationsDarling, Cape West Coast

The charming little village of Darling lies between vineyards and golden wheat fields only 75km from Cape Town along the West Coast road and 25km from the beach at Yzerfontein.

Traditionally known for its spectacular wildflowers, Darling has much more to offer visitors ... Darling has become the home of well-known South African satirist Pieter-Dirk Uys's theatre, Evita se Perron, a cabaret venue and restaurant in Darling, named after his alter-ego, Evita Bezuidenhout.

The adjacent arts and crafts market was taken over in 2006 by the Darling Trust, a charitable organisation which addresses the problems of impoverished communities in the area through the establishment of grassroots projects.

Darling is the perfect weekend getaway destination. Take in the show at Evita se Perron, spend a day at the beach in nearby Yzerfontein and explore the sights and sounds of this delightful town. There are plenty of charming places to stay and you will experience great South African hospitality at any Darling accommodation establishments.

Darling is one of those towns where you can still expect to see a horseman cantering through the streets and lovingly restored Victorian homes and ancient trees add to it's charm. Darling is a thriving agricultural centre, concentrating on dairy, wheat, grapes, peas, potatoes and sheep farming. There are several industries, including a textile factory, basket weavers and a clothing factory.
