Its time to hit the R27 with the top-down on a gorgeous, late winter morning, and head out of town to experience the Western Capes annual rite of spring.
The R27 or West Coast Road hugs the Pacific coastline and takes you to quintessential West Coast towns such as Darling, Langebaan, Paternoster and Saldanha Bay. Attractions abound. From communing with nature, to adventure, to cuisine and culture, there is something for everyone. Apart from the floral delights, highlights include whale watching at Strandfontein and St. Helena Bay, nature reserves, wine routes and beachfront restaurants that offer slow cooked, farm-style cuisine.
