Silwerstroomstrand is located on the on the West Coast WayCulture Route is named after the ‘silver stream’ to the north of the resort, which rises from a spring at the edge of the Atlantis Dunefield and supplies water to the town from its underground aquifer.

Silwerstroomstrand, just north of Melkbosstrand, is a Blue Flag beach with excellent water quality and an expansive stretch of coastline in a wonderfully secluded setting.

A small rocky point called Wintersteen provides protection from the swell for safe swimming in the sea, and there is also a tidal pool for those wanting a warmer dip without the waves.

Visitors can make a day of it and relax at one of the various picnic sites and braai areas, or for longer stays, there are comfortable bungalows and a caravan park. Other facilities available include an extensive parking area, several ablution blocks and paved walkways. Lifeguards and law enforcement services are also provided at the beach.

Travel tip:

Find other Cape West Coast Campsites here: Yzerfontein, Langebaan, Paternoster, Kardoesie N7 Countrystop.

A slipway is available for boat launching, and the shore angling is good too, particularly for hottentot fish during January and February.

The resort falls within the Cape West Coast Biosphere Reserve and Koeberg Nature Reserve is on its southern border. The habitat here supports a rich diversity of birds, so it is a popular stop on the West Coast birding route.
