16 Mile Beach: Main Beach

Yzerfontein boasts South Africa’s longest stretch of beach.

16 Mile Beach, which runs from Yzerfontein‘s Main Beach in the South, all the way up to the start of the West Coast National Park in the North. 16 Mile beach offers whale watching from September until November (calving season) and is very popular with sunbathers, Kite-surfers and Fishermen. The Schaap Island Hiking Trail starts here.
