Langebaan is a smallish town on the edge of the immense Langebaan Lagoon, about an hour’s drive north of Cape Town on the West Coast. The Lagoon is a water sports enthusiast’s paradise with wonderful kayaking, fun snorkelling and some of the best windsurfing and kitesurfing  in the world.

In summer, migratory water birds arrive in their thousands from as far away as Russia. Schaapen Island, in the middle of the lagoon, is bird sanctuary so it’s strictly off limits, but you can paddle really close to it and watch the gannets, gulls and cormorants squabbling amongst themselves.

The West Coast National Park borders on the town and sweeps down to the southern end of the lagoon. It’s a good place for spotting small game but the major attraction is the colourful spring flowers.

The small settlement of Churchhaven, and the pretty Kraalbaai are both easily reached by paddling or sailing across the lagoon, or by road through the national park. Kraalbaai is noted for its many houseboats, some of which are for rent. There are bicycles and canoes for rent in the town, and the national park is a great place to cycle.

There is a large casino resort close by, golf courses and numerous guest houses, some excellent restaurants and a fun beachfront pub.

Paradise Beach for peace and quiet
Paradise Beach is a beautiful and peaceful area. The beach is well looked after and the area is very safe. The restaurants and shops are 5 mins away should you want to do venture out.Langebaan itself is 10 mins away and makes for a nice day outing.

Restful Langebaan
Langebaan, being sheltered from the sea quickly changes its aspects from wild and windy to calm and pleasant., It is a good centre to enjoy the various places to visit on the West Coast or - as we did, just chill out.

Langebaan is a very relaxing town situated in the West Coast. For a weekend away from the city's loud noises Langebaan is the place to go.

The best place to stay
Calypso Beach is, in my opinion, the best place to stay in Langebaan. You have security and all the homes are within walking distance to the beach.

Langebaan Country Estate
We enjoyed our stay as a family at Langebaan Country Estate. The golf course and surrounds is very well kept and we found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the bird life and also saw a few springbok. There is a lot to do for people who like to be active. Golf, tennis, putt putt and marked routes for bicycles, walking or jogging. There is also a restaurant on the estate. We will be back !

Langebaan, Place of gods
Langebaan reminds me of bygone days. Friendliness of locals is something to behold. The town is bashful yet peaceful. Relaxing turqoise waters amongst a back drop of semi desert land scapes. A bespoke National Park. Our own heaven on earth and that of Greek gods. White washed beach cottages with views of swaying boats on the lagoon. Crystal blue skies painted with neon colors of kites. Lazy sun filled days, extended day light to enjoy with good Western Coast wine and fresh fish braais. People having a good time, all round.

Hi. Except for the problem with the shower at the unit we were booking in and missing our Breakfast because of it, we still love Mykonos and Langebaan and it will not be the last time we go there for a weekend getaway. Regards, Minca
