More than a kite surfing and bucket and spade colony, Langebaan, South Africa, is the perfect place to plunge into a full-tilt seaside holiday experience. There’s more than enough to keep the whole family entertained for a week.

Go wake boarding, spear fishing, bird watching or wine tasting. Head out on a self-drive game drive, attend a salt and fish rally or take a guided fossil tour. Pop in to local restaurants, cafés and pubs to have a meal or a drink, and hang with the locals. Get a massage, try your luck at the casino, go mountain biking, or take a barefoot coastal stroll. Build sandcastles on the beach with the kids, see the animal petting zoo or play some mini golf and more.

Once you’ve decided what to do with your downtime, gather gran and the kids, grab your “I survived Langebaan” t-shirt and get ready to roll.


Embark on an island-hopping bird boat tour with an experienced bird guide to see some rare feather species in their natural habitat.


For a totally immersive ocean experience, take a 5-day diving course and head underwater to mingle with our vast undersea ecosystem. A half day lagoon diving experience is also an option.


If you’d prefer not to have to answer complicated wildlife questions on a self-drive game drive, we can arrange a guided 4X4 game drive at a private reserve.


Catch a water taxi to Kraalbaai and enjoy a beach picnic before being shuttled back to dry land in the late afternoon.


Paddle Langebaan’s saltwater lagoon at a comfortable pace while wafting past the spectacular shoreline of the West Coast National Park.


Hire a bicycle and peddle around Langebaan, exploring our streets and stopping off here and there when something catches your eye.


If you’re not keen to delve to the depths of the ocean, float near the surface and observe fish and other small marine life.


Board an open deck boat, cruise out of the Mykonos harbour area and onto the surrounding waterways while clutching your drink and watching the sun fade.


Ditch your fishing rod for the age-old tradition of nabbing your catch with a pole spear.


Seat yourself in an inflatable tube towed by a powerboat and either drift calmly along, or swiftly ride, the Langebaan Lagoon.


When conditions are calm and relatively flat, SUPing (stand-up paddle boarding) is a great way to walk on water, and it’s much easier than it looks.


A bit like waterskiing combined with kite surfing without a kite, wake boarding is another exhilarating way to release your inner surfer.
