Yzerfontein, Cape West Coast

Yzerfontein is a tranquil sea-side village, 80km north of Cape Town on the R27 and marks the start of the beautiful Cape West Coast Region.

Yzerfontein offers unspoilt coastline with both rocky and sandy beaches including the famous sixteen mile beach which stretches all the way to Postberg Nature Reserve within the West Coast National Park. Yzerfontein is known for its natural beauty, vast stretches of beach and tranquillity.

Year round sunshine and a mild winter climate where pleasant daytime temperatures seldom fall below 10º C. The small craft harbour is an anglers dream, well known for its snoek and crayfish. About 60% of all line fish caught on the West Coast is landed here, providing an income to local inhabitants.

Enjoy mountain biking, whale and dolphin watching, bird watching, scenic drives and day tours as well as several hiking trails and watersports such as skiing, sailing, surfing and angling. Yzerfontein offers plenty for the nature lover, with long walks along the beach to view whales, coastal birds and flora, fields of wild flowers during spring and visits to the West Coast National Park.

Wildlife you can expect to see in the reserves around Yzerfontein include amongst others the eland, bontebok, springbok, steenbok, kudu, duiker, Cape mountain zebra, caracal, african wild cat and bat eared fox.

Stunning, stunning place on the West Coast, we love it here for holidays! Been going back every year! Lovely beaches, friendly people, stunning views and lots to see and do in the area. And you are only about 35 minutes away from the bright lights of the city if you feel the need - we never do :). LOVE, love love it here!!!!
