Chilling on the West Coast

Hello all. No, I am definitely not doing a daily blogging challenge, but I have some photographic material from the last couple of weeks that I have been dying to share with you all.

So I have spent the last 2 weekends in March relaxing along the West Coast of our Province. Always a good idea if you are wanting to miss the crowds of beach goers along the Cape Peninsula and also feel like a nice hour long drive away from the busy city.

The first weekend was spent at Preekstoel which is inside the West Coast National Park. Essentially a large saltwater lagoon it’s the perfect place to just chill with nibbles and spend quality time with those closest to you or catch up on your reading. There are also braai facilities at the top, with seating around the braai area which could comfortably allow for a party of 10.

Chizzeled in time… not sure how I feel about it though

Definitely bring your beach umbrellas though as most parts are not shaded. Definitely a great day get-away idea. Not up for the beach? The park also offers the opportunity to take a relaxed drive and enjoy viewing the amazing plant and animal life.

So let’s support our national treasures. Admission as of the date of this post is:

Outside Flower Season
South African Citizens and Residents (with ID) R54 per adult, per day
R27 per child, per day
In Flower Season (August & September)
South African Citizens and Residents (with ID) R76 per adult, per day
R38 per child, per day

I will also be adding more of the pictures on my instagram. Which are your best kept secret places that you would suggest to explore? Please comment below so everyone can get a head start on their National Heritage/Braai Day planning.
