Western Cape DestinationsJacobsbaai, Cape West Coast

Jacobsbaai, situated midway between Vredenburg and Saldanha Bay, is an isolated, traditional Cape West Coast Village. Strict building restrictions in the town have preserved the breathtaking 2 kilometers of coastline, boasting 7 individual bays and lime washed houses against an azure blue sea.

Most of the roads are gravel roads which keeps traffic at snails pace which has resulted in a peaceful little resort town, ideal for a weekend getaway or relaxing holiday. Jacobsbaai is well known for its abundance of seafood and the magnificent dislay of wild flowers that transform the lanscape of this West Coast paradise every year from late winter to spring. (July to September).

Jacobsbaai's seven individual bays are Kwaaibaai which is popular with surfers, Jacobsbaai, Smalbaai and Moerie se baai which are great for launching boats from and Bamboesbaai and Toothrock are used for diving, fishing and cray-fishing.

For water sports enthusiasts, boating, fishing and diving are the main activities. For hikers there are coastal hiking trails and dune riding is a favourite with the more adventurous. For the less adventurous, Jacobsbaai is popular for whale watching and bird-lovers will be rewarded with an abundance of birdlife found in this unspoilt resort town.
