Dwarskersbos is located on the West Coast Way Berg Route. Pristine beaches dotted with fishing boats mark the spot where intrepid explorer Vasco da Gama first set foot on the African continent in 1497

Dwarskersbos (candle bush) is a sleepy fishing village popular with holidaymakers. This particular stretch of the Cape West Coast is renowned for whale watching and one of the few places where the rare Heaviside’s dolphin can be spotted.

Dwarskesbos famously suffered an onslaught from a tidal wave in 1969 that broke through the dunes. Thankfully, the wave didn’t leave any permanent damage to the coastline with the town’s long-stretching beaches still intact.
