SANParks: West Coast National Park
The best time to visit the West Coast is between August and September, when the flower season is in full swing and the landscape is lit up with blooming wildflowers. However, West Coast National Park is a gem year round. Vast natural landscapes, unspoiled coastlines, and an easygoing lifestyle attract many visitors each year.
The focal point of West Coast National Park is undoubtedly Langebaan Lagoon, where kite boarders reign supreme and families from all backgrounds can be found sticking their toes into the cool golden sand. Long stretches of beach give way to salt marshes, inhabited by thousands of pink flamingoes, and further into the landscape, you’ll likely see a variety of tortoises, birds of prey and antelope.
