Seafood, water sports and the great outdoors – that’s the West Coast, where a rainbow of flowers explodes every spring: a show so dramatic that it’s considered one of the wonders of the natural world. But don’t confine yourself to visiting in spring, because the charm of the West Coast is that it reveals its treasures – to those who care to look for them – throughout the year.
==== WEST COAST – ATTRACTION
Take your time to discover the magic of the Winelands, West Coast Route 62 (the Breede River Valley) and Overberg – the rural areas surrounding Cape Town, where adventure and culture go hand in hand. It’s a favourite of artists and healers, writers and musicians; it’s quit and peaceful, rural and charming. And yet it offers everything you could want – from country-style golf clubs to adrenaline-thumping adventures and from sophisticated conference centres to laid-back retreats where you’re welcome to sit and do absolutely nothing at all… Except, perhaps, to sip a good wine, nibble on the fresh, juicy fruit and let your eyes – and your soul – rest on the beauty of the scenery.
