I have compiled a list of 13 fun things you can do around Langebaan:

1. VISIT OR SLEEP AT THE CLUB MYKONOS RESORT AND CASINO

Our little piece of “Greece” on the West Coast – Club Mykonos Resort is located on the serene shores of the spectacular Langebaan Lagoon.

3. VISIT POSTBERG FLOWER RESERVE DURING THE WILDFLOWER SEASON

This is one of the most visited wildflower hotspots on the West Coast. Even though it’s part of the West Coast National Park, the Postberg Flower Reserve is only open during the wildflower season (August and September).

This is to make sure the reserve is as undisturbed as possible until the next season.

4. VISIT WEST COAST FOSSIL PARK

The West Coast Fossil Park is situated approximately 20km from Club Mykonos Resort and is world-renowned for its exceptionally well-preserved fossil faunal remains that date to the terminal Miocene/early Pliocene (circa 5.2 million years ago). A national and international team of researchers are currently unravelling the fascinating and unique history of fossils from the West Coast Fossil Park and attempting to recreate the environment and climate of the west coast some 5 million years ago. At this time many animals that are now extinct, such as saber-toothed cats, short-necked giraffes, hunting hyenas, and African bears roamed the west coast which then had a more subtropical climate with lush, riverine forests and open grasslands.
