- White Sands Beach Side Holiday House
St Helena Bay is one of the world's prime fishing centres with a 31km stretch of beautiful coastline and three working harbours. Only 90 minutes from Cape Town on the ever popular West Coast, it is the ultimate year-round outdoor destination for yachtsmen, canoeists, surfers, birders and fishermen.
Shelley Point is a tiny, unspoiled peninsula that almost gives the illusion of being an island surrounded by sea. There is a golf estate offering a 9-hole golf course and a spa in the Wellness Centre.
Endemic Heaviside dolphins, as well as dusky and common dolphins visit the bay in search of food, and the calm waters give shelter to the southern right whales that come to mate and calve in the second half of the year - and can easily be seen from the shore. Humpback and killer whales are also frequent visitors.
St Helena Bay is a popular tourist destination, particularly during the spring wild flower season, with visitors from all over the world who come for relaxation and recreation. Ancient granite hills and boulders form a backdrop to the village and offer stunning views of the bay and across to the Piketberg mountains, while the white sandy beaches are perfect for beach combing and even a refreshing dip in the Atlantic.
A bird watcher's paradise, the town has a great selection of restaurants, coffee shops and pubs. A bucket list item is a cruise on the the Sandpiper yacht sailing from Port Owen in Velddrif.
