Hopefield is located on the West Coast Way Scenic Route. Its origins date back to 1851 when farmers donated money to build the majestic whitewashed Dutch Reformed Church and today two of the original farms in the town are National Heritage Sites.

Attractions include the beautiful Hopefield Dutch Reformed Church built in 1879 where the original organ still plays on Sundays, examples of the Hartebeeshuisie traditional homes of the area and the historical Cape Dutch homesteads, Coenradenburg and Langrietvlei.

Hopefield is also home to a new wind farm, where the quietly spinning turbines generate enough electricity to power about 70,000 low-income or 29,000 medium-income homes.
