Other Fun Things To Do in Veldrift:

At low tide take a walk along the Berg River to where it enters St. Helena Bay at Laaiplek. The breakwater and harbour entrance are popular sightseeing spots. You can also see Sandveld houses with their characteristic elongated design and thick walls.

Buy bokkoms, beer and more at Bokkomlaan to the east of the Berg River.

The SA Fishing Museum celebrates local history, nostalgically interweaving the whaling history to pelagic fishing and rock lobster catching. It’s the only one of its kind in the country. The late 1800s building is in De Villiers Street, at the Laaiplek Hotel.

Bird watching on the flamingo bird route which stretches along the West Coast Way. The mud banks of the Berg River have the highest diversity of waders along the Atlantic seaboard. On the beaches are black oystercatchers, terns and gulls feasting on mussels and other shellfish. The marshes have water birds including blue heron, redshank, curlew sandpipers and plovers.
Sailing, St. Helena Bay is the largest on the West Coast and offers the finest sailing conditions on the South African coastline. This is due to its sheltered nature and orientation to the prevailing summer wind. Vasco Da Gama landed here and a monument was erected on the shore by the Portuguese government.

There is also angling and fishing from the beach or boat; golf at the nine-hole golf course, squash, tennis and a bowling green.
