Tourism

Weskus Mall is situated in Vredenburg, just over an hour and a half’s drive from Cape Town. Neighbouring towns include Saldanha, Langebaan, St Helenabaai, Jacobsbaai, Paternoster, Velddrif and Hopefield.

The West Coast is famous for its Fynbos and wild flowers in the spring and local attractions include the Fossil Park, Cape Columbine Reserve, the Berg River and Langebaan Lagoon, one of the most popular water sports destinations in South Africa.

Langebaan Lagoon also falls under the West Coast National Park; an area of 30 000 Ha richly diverse plant- and wildlife. The Park is also the home of Eve’s Footprint, a site where the oldest anatomically modern fossilized footprints were found.

St Helena Bay – Whale Watching

One amazing thing about the area between Dassen Island and St Helena Bay is that it seems that some individuals of both species may be present here throughout summer, and not join the majority of whales on their summer migration to Antarctic water. This is certainly worth further investigation.

Saldanha Bay – Doc’s Caves

Legend has it that there ate two stories behind this name. 1. An Irish gentlemen lived in the cave round 1845, at the time when “White Gold” (Guano) was collected off the island in the bay. 2. An old medical doctor stayed in the cave, at the time of the great Quarantine. From the case he treated the patients who were banned from setting foot on land.
