Become one with nature at Wamakersvlei
After a 2 hour drive from Cape Town on the West Coast R27 road, you arrive at Wamakersvlei, a unique beach farm that used to be an old fishing village. Step back into the rich history that is Wamakersvlei along the Cape West Coast.
Early settlers to the area would transport crops from Velddrif, approximately 20 kilometres away from Wamakersvlei, to Laaiplek to have their goods shipped to Cape Town. Traversing two-track sandy paths as part of this journey, many stopped at the nearby salt pans to repair damage to their wagons. And so, Wamakersvlei was born.
Today you can enjoy this unique part of the West Coast at Wamakersvlei Beach Farm – 400 hectares of wilderness to truly appreciate this unique heritage, not to mention at the 7 kilometres of coastline you will have to yourself. And maybe some cattle.
Take in the luxury of Mosseltrap, an authentic old style west coast beach house that sleeps eight, located on the beach. The large indoor fireplace makes it the perfect location from which to enjoy winter here in the West Coast. Four other cottage options are also available.
A two-track pathway leads you across the natural saltpans before meandering through dunes and ‘fynbos,’ taking you to your quaint cottage.
Come and enjoy legendary West Coast hospitality at Wamakersvlei Beach Guest Farm.
Spend your days in total bliss exploring 400 hectares of unspoiled nature by foot or mountain bike.
Smell the ocean and fynbos as you follow the tracks and trails of the abundant indigenous wildlife. Experience bright starry nights, iridescent sunsets or just enjoy relaxed strolls along the scenic 7km private beach. The northern boundary is the Rocher Pan Nature Reserve.
