Strandfontein & Doringbaai
Strandfontein is situated on the mouth of the Olifant's River. Strandfontein evolved from being an insignificant rural beach resort to a bustling tourist mecca during the wild flower season (August/September) and during the South African summer season (November to February) and Easter holidays (March/April).
Strandfontein has become one of the main holiday resorts in South Africa for the observation of Southern Right whales which come close into the protective bay during their calving season. At this time, you will most certainly spot the Southern Rights frolicking in the bay with their babies close by.
During the bustling Summer holiday season there are Christian groups who arrange several activities locally for young and old who are energetic enough for a game of volleyball or cricket on the beach.
