is a smallish town on the edge of the immense Langebaan Lagoon, about an
hourís drive north of Cape Town on the Cape
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 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.
|The small settlement of
Churchhaven, and the pretty Kraalbaai are both easily reached by paddling
or sailing across the lagoon, or by road through the national park. Kraalbaai
is noted for its many houseboats, some of which are for rent. There are
bicycles and canoes for rent in the town, and the national park is a great
place to cycle.
There is a large casino resort
close by, golf courses and numerous guest houses, some excellent restaurants
and a fun beachfront pub.
