About Yzerfontein Main Beach

Yzerfontein is mostly known for having wonderful spring wildflowers, great kitesurfing and windsurfing, and good fishing. It’s also known for the seemingly endless stretch of 16 Mile Beach, starting in the south at Yzerfontein Main Beach. A beachfront restaurant maximizes the view. There are public ablutions and just south of the beach is the interesting village harbour.

16-Mile Beach stretches as far as the eye can see and is wonderful to walk or run along. Safe for swimming and surfing but water too cold on west coast due to Benguela current coming up from Antarctic.

Not the traditional sandy beach, but lots of fun for boogie boarding, surfing or snorkel diving
