Yzerfontein is a small west coast town about 90km north of Cape Town. The perfect distance to escape city life for a tranquil beach escape.

It is known for its Sixteen Mile Beach, stretching from the main beach north bordering the West Coast National Park. The perfect setting for a long walk or run. The water in Yzerfontein is cold but it is a favourite spot for surfers. Main beach is safe for swimming and if you are brave, you can join a group of locals for their 7am swim every morning!

In recent years Yzerfontein has grown with numerous retail developments servicing all the needs for the local community. Yzerfontein has a wide variety of restaurants, coffee shops and bakeries. You should be able to find everything you need for a weekend away in this west coast haven.

16 Mile Beach

The 16 Mile beach runs from Yzerfontein's Main Beach all the way to the border of the West Coast National Park in the North. The beach is the longest uninterrupted beach on SA's coastline. This +- 30km of beach is popular with sunbathers, kite surfers, swimmers and surfers.
From September until November it is calving season for whales and they can be spotted from the coastline.
The main beach can be enjoyed by families on a sunny day. Keen runners or walkers can venture up north until they get to the West Coast National Park border. Please just check the tides as high tide might reduce the stretch of sandy beach to run and walk on as you go further north from the main beach.
