At 160km from Cape Town, Britannia Bay is an easy and scenic 90-minute drive up the iconic West Coast. This sleepy seaside village is the perfect blend of unspoiled beaches and natural beauty, making it a hotspot for locals interested in a mini-break and a sought-after holiday destination for visitors from afar.
The beaches here are amongst the most beautiful in Cape Town, with pristine shores stretching for miles and topped with clear blue waters just begging you to dive in. The bay is very protected, with warmer water than most beaches on the West Coast due to the cold Benguela current not entering the bay, making it ideal for families travelling with children. Be sure to keep an eye out for the Southern Right and Humpback whales and the Dusky and Heaviside dolphins who visit these shores for an astounding ten months out of the year - it’s sure to be a sight you’ll remember for a lifetime.
If you ever get tired of relaxing on miles of unspoiled beach (unlikely), why not take the 10-minute boat trip to Seal Island and experience a thoroughly enjoyable day of fishing, diving and cray-fishing. The other must-see attraction is the West Coast National Park. Home to a turquoise lagoon, rare flora and fauna, and over 200 bird species, this national park is a place of magic sure to exceed your imagination.
As one of the best places in Cape Town to stop and (literally) smell the flowers, Britannia Bay offers a tranquil holiday experience like no other.
