If you feel like a holiday getaway away from the more tourist-heavy areas, look no further than the quiet shores of St Helena Bay. This beautiful fishing town is less than 2 hours from Cape Town, providing holidaymakers with a scenic road trip along the West Coast and the perfect destination for a secluded getaway.
Known as a relatively isolated fishing town, this hidden gem offers the ultimate minimalist vacation for those more interested in a tranquil environment, as opposed to a non-stop adrenaline adventure. Quiet streets, wide-open spaces and unspoiled beaches make it a treat for the entire family. Long lazy days relaxing on sun-warmed sand, diving into calm turquoise water, chill fishing trips, and taking the boat out for a joy ride is exactly the laid back fun St Helena offers.
Just a bit further up, visitors can enjoy the comforts of the Shelley Point Golf Estate and Hotel. Treat yourself to a day of spa treatments and pampering, get in a bit of exercise at the 9-hole golf course, try the guided sea-kayaking tours, or enjoy an unforgettable horse-riding experience along the beach. So many options! If you aren't up to preparing meals during your getaway, De Palm offers a great blend of Pub and Grub with a kid and pet-friendly environment.
From rubbing elbows with the friendly locals at De Palm, relaxing on the beach or exploring the nearby areas of Shelley Point and Paternoster, St Helena Bay offers visitors a bit of everything to keep boredom far from shore.
