Set on the noth side of a massive bay, the town of Saldanha is a holiday hot spot for water sport lovers to sail and water ski all summer. The big bay is a favoured venuw for regattas and sailors to test their skills, and provides a scenic backrdrop to the town.

While Saldanha is a busy working town, holiday makers come to relax and unwind, enjoy fresh seafood at the various seafood restaurants at the water’s edge, and to soak up the surrounding natural scenery.

Most prominent of the natural attractions is Adam and Eve, two massive vertical rocks on the mountainside overlooking Saldanha. This is also a viewpoint for panoramic vistas of the area.

The town also hosts a naval training base and the South African Military Academy, while the popular SAS Saldanha Nature Reserve is a floral wonderland of spring flowers with a marine backrdrop.

Southern right whales also visit the safe waters near the nature reserve. Hoedjieskoppie Nature Reserve on a hill in the middle of town boasts beautiful views and traditional fishermen’s cottages.


Sailing, fishing, hiking and biking surrounded by spring daisies are all Saldanha specialties. So is relaxing or exploring the quaint town with views all the way to Cape Town.
