Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa - Cape Point Route
Kommetjie (Afrikaans for
"small basin") is a suburb of Cape Town, in the Western Cape province of
South Africa. It lies about halfway down the west coast of the Cape Peninsula,
at the southern end of the long wide beach that runs northwards towards
Chapman's Peak and Noordhoek.
The village is situated around
a small, natural and rocky inlet that resembles a basin. The area is a
popular spot for surfing, since powerful waves from the Atlantic Ocean
rise up over rocky reefs formed by hard sandstones of the Table Mountain
Group. Wherever the bottom is rocky, the shallower waters are thick with
giant kelp forests. Approximately 32 kms from the centre of Cape
Town and the V&A Waterfront.

Cape West Coast, South Africa
Langebaan is a town situated
on the edge of the beautiful Langebaan Lagoon, about 2 hours' drive north
of Cape Town on the West Coast. The lagoon is a water sports enthusiastís
paradise with wonderful kayaking, fun snorkelling and some of the best
windsurfing and kitesurfing in the world.
In summer, migratory water
birds arrive in their thousands from as far away as Russia. Schaapen Island,
in the middle of the lagoon, is a bird sanctuary, so itís strictly off
limits, but you can paddle really close to it and watch the gannets, gulls
and cormorants squabbling amongst themselves.

|The West Coast
National Park borders on the town and sweeps down to the southern end of
the lagoon. Itís a good place for spotting small game but the major attraction
is the colourful spring flowers.
