Strandfontein; The Jewel of the West Coast

From an insignificant little coastal resort to a veritable tourist mecca, Strandfontein has evolved into a bustling attraction for locals and overseas visitors. An ideal stopover for those travelling from Namibia along the N7 who wish to discover the many facets of this beautiful, pristine coastline where whales frequent the shores annually and wild flowers carpet the spectacular landscape during August and September.

Summers are balmy in this gem of a coastal town offering brilliant clear days and azure blue seas for water sport enthusiasts. On any day during the December holiday season the town of Strandfontein hums with visitors. Jet skiers put their machines through their paces, surfers compete with dolphins to catch the ultimate wave, canoeists paddle between kelp beds and try their luck at fishing while kids play in the surf.

For adrenaline junkies there is always an option of paragliding through the pristine coastal skies and looking down upon the magic which Strandfontein offers.Winters are mild and are sometimes chilly at night, sufficient excuse for a crackling fire, a glass of wine and good company.

Strandfontein is the ultimate destination for total relaxation, peace and tranquility. Here you will find clear skies, endless white beaches and unsurpassed hospitality from your hosts at Strandfontein.
