West Coast National Park

Accommodation in West Coast National Park


Star Rating:3

Just inland from the secluded harbour of Saldanha Bay one finds the azure waters of the Langebaan Lagoon, focal point of the West Coast National Park. Thousands of seabirds roost on sheltered islands, pristine golden beaches stretch endlessly into the early morning mist and brooding salt marshes are home to vast concentrations of migrant waders from the northern hemisphere.

During the spring the strandveld is embroidered with a tapestry of multi-hued flowers, while in the Postberg section many antelope are to be seen in a setting that is as unique as it is idyllic.

The park has been divided into 3 recreational zones:  Zone A: multi-functional section for most water sports.  Zone B: reserved for sailboats and board sailing (no power boats or angling).  Zone C: wilderness area which is closed to the public.
