West Coast National Park reviews
Went to have lunch at Geelbek Restaurant and took a drive. Saw quite some wildlife. Enjoyed the outing and scenery. more »
We have visited the park many times in all seasons and the experience is totally different depending the season and the weather. Our latest visit was late January 2021. After the winter rains it is..... more »
Perfect outing for a day if you visit the beach. Check the tide tables to plan accordingly. Be prepared and take along umbrellas, gazebos etc. Pack as light as possible so when the tide comes in its easier and quicker to pack up.
It's about 1.5 hrs from Cape Town. Gate opens at 07h00 in summer. We hot there at 07h30 and there was already a long queue to get in. If you are going to the lagoon then take a gazebo or umbrellas for shade. No shops nothing to buy there so take everything you need. The lagoon is shallow and fun to play in so take an inflatable boat or toy. Lots of fun. Nice and clean. Soft sand. Warm water.
