Schaap Eiland / Pearl Bay Beach

Schaap Eiland is a little peninsula which is cut off from the mainland during high tide.

Have a rest on one of the wooden benches erected for this purpose and enjoy the sea, the peace, the whales and the view of Dassen Island nine kilometers away in the distance. On a clear day you may even see Table Mountain. The Schaap Island Hiking Trail Ends here. Pearl Bay Beach is on the southern edge of Yzerfontein and is quiet, secluded and unspoilt.
