About Seeberg Viewpoint

There are numerous reasons to include Seeberg Viewpoint on your visit to the West Coast National Park. One is the view of the little historical, stone cottage perched atop the granite boulders that overlook the Langebaan Lagoon.

Did you know? There is a bike trail from up atop the viewpoint that follows well-marked trails in the park.

Take your camera as the white of the cottage against the blue of the sky, the granite boulders and the turquoise waters of the lagoon in the background is a photo moment waiting to happen (you simply cannot go wrong).

Another reason for a visit is the views of the lagoon, for you can see right across the park from up here. And a third is that during spring there is often a blanket of flowers in bloom across the valley floor at the foot of the boulders. This is the secret alternative to Postberg.

Some visitors love this spot to such an extent that they bring their picnic blankets and camp out for the afternoon. On days the wind blows, however, you may not even be able to stand upright, and a quick read of the history of the viewpoint in the cottage's museum interior is a better bet, before stumbling your way back to the car.

Seeberg Viewpoint is closest to the northern Langebaan park entrance. The turnoff the main gravel road through the park is well marked and close to one of the bird hides. If you plan to overnight, it is recommended that you book your accommodation in Langebaan well ahead to avoid disappointment. Paternoster accommodation is also a popular option with visitors to the West Coast National Park.

Conversely, if you enter from the R27 at the West Coast gate, you have only to take the road right to Duinepos, past Geelbek and Flaming Jo's beach camp.

The little stone house at Seeberg is said to have been built by a local Dutchman called Bollie Prenz from stones he gathered around the base of the hill and carried up in bags. He also had a vegetable and fruit garden just north of the hill – quince, fig and prickly pear trees, some of which are still standing. He had water from a good underground source. But you can read about this and more inside the cottage's museum.
