Dwarskersbos is a fishing village some 11 km north of Laaiplek. The name is said to be derived from Afrikaans; kersbos is a type of plant.
Near here the Portuguese navigator Vasco da Gama first set foot on South African soil on 7 November 1497 when he explored the present St Helena Bay.
Dwarskersbos is ideal for a laid-back weekend or holiday. Brunch on the balcony of your self-catering accommodation or enjoy an afternoon braai watching the sun set over the ocean. It’s a photographers dream those sunsets!
The long white sandy beach and beautiful Atlantic ocean are perfect for lazy days and long walks. It is in the most beautiful flower-area and bird lovers will find a wealth of birding sites, as well as the whale watching in the months of June to September, as the Southern Right whales pass the coastline….. perfect for tourists to just relax… and allow the soul to unwind.
