YZERFONTEIN
This tranquil seaside village lies 85 km north of Cape Town on the R27. Yzerfontein is renowned for its unspoilt beaches, including the pristine 16-Mile Beach which stretches all the way to Postberg  Nature Reserve within the West Coast National Park.

Yzerfontein's small craft harbour is a fisherman's haven. It is well-known for its snoek and crayfish -some 60% of all line fish caught on the West Coast is landed here, providing an income to many local inhabitants.

In spring the veld and dunes in and around the village are a spectacular sight with their masses of brightly coloured indigenous flowers.

The bay is also a favoured destination for whales in the spring. These graceful giants of the ocean come into the bay to calve. Visitors can watch from a number of vantage points while the whales play in the sea close inshore.

Originally laid out and developed by Abraham Katz in 1936, the village of Yzerfontein has remained a popular holiday resort. Over the years, it has gradually grown and we can now offer visitors a wide range of accommodation, restaurants and things to do. We look forward to your visit.
