Clanwilliam isn't much as a town. There is a good Super Spar + Top's Spar for shopping.Nearby are the fantastic Ceder Mountains where is also acc. and a lot of hiking opportunities.The pakhuis pass is worth the drive and don't forget the SAN-rock paintings at the Sevilla trail (Travelers Rest, over the Pakhuis pass) and at Stadsaal.There are some wineries and the Rooibos tea factory.
Beautiful landscape and events
Clanwilliam is lovely - I think the town is a bit worn down, and the community at large seems very poor. But the region is gorgeous, and worth an extended stay. There are organised walks to San paintings, a museum, lots of cafes, a fantastic wold flower show annually, the dam, and of course, an amazing UCT initiated arts project that culminates each year in a lantern festival and performance (September).
Great stopover or Destination
Clanwilliam is a great base for visiting the Cederberg. In town, you can find some great coffee shops and even buy a couple of pairs of leather shoes, your style & colour! Accommodation is varied but self-catering option worked for us. You can make a braai and watch the sunset over the mountains with a glass wine from the Cederberg Winery.. Awesome :-)
