velddrif canoe challengeThe meandering Berg River reflects the tranquillity of this fishing village. A birder’s mecca, wader hotspot and fishermen, bokkoms and beaches, this is what life is all about. Our lovely beaches are situated along St Helena Bay and form part of the West Coast whale route. A deep water marina and excellent sailing conditions in St Helena Bay is an added attraction for sailors. A wonderful holiday haven offering solitude or loads of family fun on warm West Coast days. Accommodation options, restaurants, antique and art shops, as well as studios provide for an interesting experience.


Also refer to the Berg River Canoe Marathon, held annually in July in Velddrif
