Still Bay
The mouth of the Kafferkuils River, which divides Still Bay East and Still Bay West

This quaint little holiday village is a haven for holiday makers and those people who knows it, return year after year to relax on its white beaches, play golf or enjoy the students when they play their annual game of touch rugby on the shores of the river.

One of the highlights of a visit to Still Bay is to go on the Noordkapper Hiking trail which takes you all the way to Jongensfontein. This is an easy walk of about 14 Km and will take you past fish traps built by Strandloper Hottentots long before Still Bay was discovered as a holiday destination.

Situated on the migratory rout of the whales, Still Bay offers you the opportunity to see some of these large mammals between mid June and October. 

You must also visit the Tourism Bureau at 11:00 to watch South Africa'ns only tame eels being hand fed. Closed on Sundays.

You could go on a trip down the river or go on the flower route or visit one of the the local Nature Reserves like Pauline Bohnen, Rein'ns and Geelkrans. At Pauline Bohnen Nature Reserve there are hiking trails, bicycle routes and bird watching facilities.

Still Bay offers the fisherman many opportunities to try and catch that big one. There is a change to fish from the beach, from the rocks, in the river or deep see fishing on chartered boats. 

The following hiking trails are available:

  • West Bank Route: This is an easy trail which will take 2 to 5 hours. It is excellent for bird watching, as well as giving you the opportunity to see some of the local flora and fauna.

  • Noordkapper Route: Another easy route of 4 hours. It follows the coastline to Jongensfontein. You can see flowers, whales, fish traps, caves and it also pass ancient middens.

  • Pauline Bohnen Route: This easy to average route of 2 to 4 hours gives you panoramic views of the ocean with the added possibility of spotting a couple of whales. It takes you through dune fynbos and there is always the possibility of spotting the odd antelope.

  • Lappiesbaai Beach Route: This is an easy  route to tackle at low tide. It takes you along unspoiled sandy beaches with unique rock formations. Also suitable to watch for whales during the whale season.

Accommodation is available at:
Bellevue Inn Son en See Alikreukel Guest House Rein'ns Nature Reserve
Lapiesbaai Holiday Houses Ellensrus Caravan Park Fonteine B & B
