Yzerfontein is a small, quiet fishing village directly on the ocean at the West Coast.
As a coastal fishing village with a small harbour, it’s friendly and welcoming, with all the charm of a town that cares for its people, wild life, and, of course, the fynbos kingdom in which it is situated.
Yzerfontein is an urban conservancy and residents work tirelessly to protect the natural heritage for generations to come. Across the small bay, fishing boats, pleasure boats and jet-skis all mix with kite-boarders, surfers, kayakers and swimmers.
You can walk the 16-Mile Beach – the longest uninterrupted sandy beach on the South African coastline.
It stretches north from the main beach of the town, to the West Coast National Park, which borders the town. Dassen Island, another nature reserve, is about 10 km offshore.
Pearl Bay is another beach that seems to go on forever and has a view all the way to Table Mountain.
A variety of birds can be seen in the West Coast National Park. Various activities can be enjoyed ranging from swimming, fishing, 4×4 trails, as well as markets and the Dassen Island Lighthouse.
