Western Cape DestinationsLamberts Bay, Cape West Coast

The unpretentious, picturesque seaside village of Lambertís Bay lies right up the West Coast, not far from Clanwilliam and only 2.5 hoursí drive from Cape Town.

This part of the coast is quite simply beautiful, with wide expanses of white sand under blazing blue skies and endless opportunity to experience seafood in the heart of crayfish country. The open-air restaurants along the coast here have become something of an institution and offer unforgettable traditionally prepared seafood right next to the shoreline, as the sun goes down.

The proximity to the sea and sand offers plenty for visitors to do. You can sandboard on the dunes, go on a guided quadbike trip or even a microlight flight over the bay, when youíre not partaking in the usual water sports like swimming, surfing and sunbathing.

The seabird breeding colonies at Bird Island attract tourists from all over the country and offer Ďup close and personalí experiences with Cape gannets, cormorants and African penguins.

Only 100 metres offshore of Lambertís Bay, and accessible by ferry or across the breakwater, the modern gannet lookout at Bird Island allows one access to unique mating dances and the incredible vocalising of thousands of gannets on their nests.

The Heavisideís Dolphin is endemic to this part of the coast and can be spotted as close as 150 metres from the shore in small groups of up to 20 dolphins. Lambertís Bay is regarded as one of the best places to spot this species all year round and anywhere along the bay, particularly in front of the caravan park or up on a dune, is a good spot.

There are also organised boat trips that include the Dusky Dolphin, Southern Right Whale - between August and November - and the Humpback Whale on its seasonal migration, on their itinerary.
