I Love Langebaan Because …

Updated Wednesday, 2 January 2019

Hi, I’m Shahn from The Farmhouse Hotel in Langebaan on the Cape West Coast.

Langebaan IS BEST KNOWN FOR it’s beautiful Lagoon, rich historical heritage, array of fauna & flora, delicious seafood, water sports and fun filled activities.

GET YOUR PICTURE TAKEN AT the West Coast National Park, it is one of the most popular attractions in Langebaan and has a rich historical history added to it. In the park there are many things to see and do such as bird watching, sightseeing, Geelbek restaurant and info centre, shark bay and even house boats.


THE BEST memorable PICTURES CAN BE TAKEN AT Postberg during flower season or during summer you just have to take a picture on Langebaan main beach.

OTHER HAPPY SNAPS AT the Fossil Park, your favourite restaurant or while going on a boat trip.

WHEN THE WEATHER’S GOOD, I LIKE TO go fishing, boat riding or even partaking in water activities such as wind surfing, jet skiing, kayaking.

WHEN THE WEATHER’S BAD, I LIKE TO go shopping, visit my favourite restaurant or stay in doors and watch a movie.

I THINK THE BEST TIME OF YEAR TO VISIT IS between August and September, BECAUSE its flower season on The West Coast on of our most beautiful features apart from our stunning Lagoon. Here and there if you lucky you can even spot a whale while taking a boat trip.

Langebaan Lagoon

MY FAVOURITE BREAKFAST SPOT IS Lekka By Die See. To experience nature at its best so early in the morning in a great way to start your day.

FOR LUNCH, I SUGGEST Die Strandloeper, one of Langebaan’s cannot be missed restaurants. The specialise is more of a seafood cuisine and has most people talking about it for days.

MY FAVOURITE RESTAURANT IS Boesmanland Plaas Kombuis which serves traditional West Coast cuisine. With various buffets to choose from makes dinning in a different environment at its best, TRY THE Farmhouse Hotel Restaurant for a tasty traditional meals with a view. Friendly staff awaits you.

BEST LATE NIGHT SNACK FROM Wimpy Engen One Stop Garage or at Bonjour at the Total Garage in Langebaan.

FOR A NIGHT OUT ON THE TOWN TRY Funky Lemon or Wingerd or Flamingos night club.


Langebaan’s BEST KEPT SECRET IS is its friendly people.

MY FAVOURITE THING TO DO WITH FRIENDS IS chilling at Beach Bar or going on to a club.


TO RELAX AND RESTORE MY SOUL, I LIKE TO go for a Mint Wellness Spa treatment. You can always do with a massage or facial.

West Coast National Park

IF YOU’RE FEELING ADVENTUROUS, TRY kite surfing, kiting, speed boat riding, horse riding, kayaking, quad biking, painting ball, jet skiing, wind surfing or cycling.

MY FAVOURITE DRIVE IS through the National Park where you can experience nature at its best.

MY FAVOURITE shopping STOP IS is Weskus Mall Vredenburg or Lagoona Mall in Langebaan.

MY FAVOURITE bird WATCHING SPOT IS in the West Coast National Park (Kraal Baai).

IF YOU’RE HERE IN March, JOIN IN THE FUN AT the Lagoon Fees which only happens once a year.

MY FAVOURITE MUSEUM IS The Fossil Park Museum. I think its kind of call how things were like many years ago. CHECK OUT THE answer.

MY FAVOURITE BUILDING IS The Farmhouse Hotel, FOR ITS unique character and the fact that its one of the oldest buildings in Langebaan. It has quite a bit of history to it and still has that old architecture to it.

TRAVELLING WITH CHILDREN? A FUN OUTING IS is Sunny Park or visit the Fossil Park.

Langebaan Lagoon

BEST CHEAP AND CHEERFUL OUTING IS having a picnic on the beach or visiting a Kontiki Bar or even KFC.

WHEN MONEY’S NO OBJECT, I LIKE TO go all out visit fancy restaurants and partake in various activities.

THE MOST UNUSUAL THING I SEE HERE IS lots of different restaurants and many waters sports / activities to participate in.

MY FAVOURITE WEEKEND GETAWAY IS going to the hot springs and doing some thing different other that the things which I normally do in my town.

WHEN I WANT TO GIVE BACK TO THE COMMUNITY, I give my old clothes to less fortunate people and try and help people where I can in the community.

Sustainable and responsible tourism development is very important when wanting to make a success. I feel that most of our tourism products are natural and we have policies in place which protects our environment in order for all visitors to have a memorable stay each time they visit

I Love Langebaan because of its silent get away feature and relaxing environment. It is here where you can experience nature at its best.
