A Beautiful Quiet Spot - The town is very small and quiet, a perfect place for relaxation and rest. Location is great for those wishing to explore the West Coast National park which was the main reason I went. Although it's only a short distance from Cape Town, you really feel like you're in a secluded spot away from everyone. There are only a few restaurants here and no bars/night life that I saw but I wasn't looking for that anyway I travelled with my kids. If you just want to get away from it all and rest, this is a great choice.

Yzerfontein - Yzerfontein is a very calm and relaxing place with lots of hiking facilities which is nice. Whereever you go, there is a hiking trail. Lovely for early mornings and sunset walks.

Perfect break-away - Yzer is the perfect break-away destination, not too far from Cape Town but hidden just enough to allow one to feel you're sheltered from the norm. A 'Yzerfontein stay' rejuvenates and feeds the soul.

Seaside Relaxation - Yzerfontein is a beautiful seaside town with its 16 Mile beach and neighbouring nature reserve. It's a great place to unwind from the City bustle. Will definitely go back!!

Quite town off the R27 - My experience in the little town was more of a couples retreat. Most of the neighbours are friendly and enjoy the company of one another. I recommend Yzerfontein for couples from age 28 and up. Great place!
