Diving, Snorkling & Shark Cage Diving
Deep Sea Fishing & Angling
In and around Somerset West sprawl the vineyards of the Helderberg Wine Route's estates and wineries.
We are situated in the centre of South Africa's top golf courses. A real golfer's haven with no less than three 18-hole golf courses. If you are looking for a little peace and quiet and need to get away from it all, then try a dose of absolute solitude surrounded by the majestic Helderberg and Hottentots Holland Mountains.
Somerset West and its surrounding areas offer some excellent mountain biking routes from ragged mountains trails to challenging routes through forests. There are all types of water sport available in nearby Strand and Gordon’s Bay and the warm False Bay lends itself to surfing, parasailing, sailing, boating, and windsurfing to name just a few.
The coastline between Gordon’s Bay and Hangklip offers excellent diving sites for novices and experienced divers alike, with winter and summer diving for snorkeling and scuba. Another way of viewing the Helderberg is from the deck of a charter boat crewed by experienced and certified skippers.
Between June and December each year hundreds of Southern Right Whales visit the sheltered, shallow bays of the South African coastline to calve and nurture their offspring. Saddle up and escape on horse back to the majestic mountains, the clear streams and beautiful vineyards of the Cape Winelands.
