A mere 25 minutes north of the Mother City you will find a whole new world just waiting to be explored; one of unspoiled beauty, pristine beaches, quaint fishing villages and rich cultural history. It can, in fact, be said that nowhere else in South Africa offers the unique diversity that one can experience in as compact a region as the unique West Coast Biodiversity Corridor which stretches from Blaauwberg to St Helena Bay on the R27, and inland to the R45. The West Coast is the quintessential ‘road less travelled’ and custom-built for a good old-fashioned road trip
