Saldanha on the Cape West Coast

Saldanha Bay is situated approximately 140Km from Cape Town on the West Coast Road (R27). The town was built upon one of the largest natural bays on our African coast, but development only truly got underway once a pipeline providing fresh water from the Berg River was laid to the town.

Saldanha Bay Harbour is renowned for its ability to handle amongst other commodities, the shipping of iron ore for which a dedicated railway line was built to transport iron ore from Sishen to Saldanha Bay for this very purpose.

Several industries have emerged and provide much needed employment for the local population, as a result of the Saldanha Bay harbour including companies such as Namakwa Sands, Duferco and Sea Harvest. The beautiful bay is home to the Saldanha Yacht Club which hosts several regattas annually.

Saldanha Bay is widely known for its Naval Training Base and the South African Military Academy. TheSAS Saldanha Nature Reserve is a "must see" during late winter and early spring for the beautiful spring flowers and Southern Right Whales who visit the bay. Don't miss the "Hoedjieskop"-Reserve, a hill in the middle of the town offering magnificent photo opportunities with 360 degree views of the town.
