With its unspoiled beaches, incredible mountain ranges and the most outstanding wild flower displays, the West Coast has evolved into a major holiday destination. Salt of the earth residents call the West Coast their home, where snoek, mussels, crayfish and bokkoms are their way of life.

Lampiesbaai is located in the Peninsula, 156km from Cape Town and close to the beautiful Brittania Bay with its miles of unspoiled beaches.

DOLPHIN & WHALE WATCHING

The southern right whales come annually from the Sub-Antarctic regions to calve and mate during the months of June to November. Humpback whales may be sighted during the months of October and November as these animals migrate south from their breeding grounds in tropical West Africa to their feeding grounds in the Antarctic. The bay is also popular for the dolphins schools of over 1 000

have been sighted at times. The bay also hosts a variety of marine birds, penguins and large colonies of seals.

More about St Helena Bay

This great bay received its name from the Portuguese navigator, Vasco da Gama. He visited the bay on 7th November 1497 while on his pioneering voyage from Europe to the East, and named it the Bahai da Santa Elena, after the Religious Mother of Constantine the Great.

Close to, or near the mouth of the Berg River (which the

Portuguese called Rio de Santiago), the explorers replenished their water, collected firewood and relaxed for a week after their grueling four month ocean voyage.

It was here that a foolish brawl developed between one of Da Gama''s sailors and a group of Khoi-Khoi - the first clash on the Cape West Coast between Europeans and the indigenous people. Nobody was killed, but Da Gama was injured in the leg. A memorial consisting of three marble pedestals has been erected close to the main road at Stompneus Bay to commemorate Da Gama''s

voyage.

St. Helena Bay is one of the World''s principal fishing centres. The cold Benguela current surges upwards along this part of the coast and bring to the surface large concentrations of nutrient salt. Huge shoals of anchovies and pilchards (before they were depleted by over fishing) fed in the area on the plankton which flourished on the nutrient salts.

Twelve busy fish-processing factories were established along the 21km curve of the shore from

West Point to Sandy Point and Stompneus. In the heyday of pilchards, the scene was one of frenzied activity during the catching season, which normally lasted from the 1 January to 31 July.

The bay is also well known for its snoek, especially during the winter months.

St. Helena is especially beautiful since wheat fields reach down almost to the water''s edge and only a tarmac road runs along the coast providing a boundary line between agriculture and fishing. Furthermore, because of the town''s position it is the only town on the West Coast where the sun rises over the sea.
