The sunny town of Strandfontein is a favoured holiday destination with its long white beaches, luxury seaside accommodation and kiddie-friendly activities.

A lovely tidal pool and children's playground makes the beach a favourite spot for families. However, the beautiful white beaches and clear blue water have much to offer to all age groups. Activities include organised boat trips, swimming, and surfing, hang-gliding and hiking trails. During the months of July, August and September, Strandfontein is decorated with beautiful wild flowers. An added bonus is the opportunity to view the dolphins and whales with their calves when they come to take shelter in the calm Cape West Coast waters.

The location of this holiday resort has breathtaking views of the sea which stretches into the distance. Strandfontein has a variety of accommodation facilities ranging from camping, caravanning, B&B’s and guest houses.

Strandfontein is an ideal stop-over or break away for you if you’re wanting to escape the busy city life and to spend lazy days strolling on the beach. Other attractions include the vineyards closest to the Atlantic Ocean, a tidal pool as well as a slipway for launching inflatables. Mussels and crayfish can be harvested along the coast if you’ve got a permit.
