Camping in Jacobsbaai – Jacobsbaai is a quaint protected little village between Saldanha and Vredenburg on the West Coast just south of Paternoster  It is situated in the Cape West Coast Biosphere Reserve and has pristine beaches and great fishing in protected coves a mere 400m away, life on the West Coast doesn’t get much better.

For a number of years camping was always considered to be a family gathering during school holidays or during the festive season, a time when families spent time together, creating memories and sharing stories around the campfire.   Camping at Jacobsbaai Backpackers is fun and you can spend the day on the beach enjoying the crisp fresh air and soft wine sand.  The water is chilly, yet refreshing and great for surfing and sea fishing (close to Kwaaibaai which is also a popular surfing spot.

Sample traditional west coast fare at Weskusplek, Jacobsbaai’s only restaurant where fresh fish is supplied by the local fishermen daily.  The Cape fish bobotie (fish curry) is also a popular dish on the menu.

At the start of spring, the wild flowers appear after good rainfall in winter and the fields are transformed into a kaleidoscope of colours.

Langebaan is only 20 minus drives away and you can visit the casino, restaurants as well as the West Coast Mall in Vredenburg, 14km from Jacobsbaai.
