Great size land in a really nice location. Build your north facing home here in peaceful Lampiebaai and watch the sun rise over Golden Mile Beach and set in the general direction of Brittania Bay.

There are not many places where you can experience this phenomenon in South Africa and especially not on the West Coast.You see St Helena Bay is one of 3 bays that is located north giving the opportunity of seeing the most magnificent sunrises and sunsets that you can imagine.Even better doing this from the comfort of your patio whilst enjoying an ice cold beverage - Red wine seems to be the favourite tipple,

Pop along and catch your own rock lobsters for the dinner pot or stop at the harbour as the fisherman arrive with their catch of the day, snoek, hake, angel fish, and many other delicious fishes for that evening braai as the dusk settles over the calmest bay you going to find. ''

gentle breezes that cool you from the hot sun earlier in the day make for precious times to sit and soak up the amazing vistas surrounding you.

Saint Helena Bay (Afrikaans: St. Helenabaai) is a settlement in West Coast District Municipality in the Western Cape province of South Africa.

In winter it is host to many fishing activities, where snoek is found in its waters, as well as an endangered species of rock lobster and crayfish.
