Yzerfontein at a glance
Blessed with the natural beauty of the West Coast, Yzerfontein nestles alongside the West Coast National Park, about 70 Kilometers north of Cape Town on the R 27 West Coast Road.
Yzerfontein is well known for it's natural beauty and wildlife therefore the village is a proclaimed urban conservancy. Spring sees the natural Fynbos burst into a kaleidoscope of colour and in the summer the whales arrive in the bay to calve. The famous 16 Mile Beach, a broad stretch of white sand, extents to the West Coast National Park and walks have been laid out for those who want to stroll along the shore. A small craft harbour in the bay is used as a safe launch site by recreational boat owners and commercial fishermen who catch snoek, yellowtail and crayfish. Close offshore is Dassen Island, a small rocky outcrop with a working lighthouse and home to many different species of seabirds, Penguins and Cape fur seals.
Yzerfontein is a seaside resort with many upmarket holiday homes of surrounding farmers as well as migrants from Europe (mainly the United Kingdom and Germany) who arrive each year to escape the European winter. Permanent residents are drawn from retired professionals, commercial fishermen, artists, crafters and with it's close proximity to Cape Town, many residents commute to town on a daily basis. The tranquility and beautiful scenery also makes it a favoured destination for local production companies with many owning property in the area.
With the opening of the Pearl Bay & Pearl Bay Heights areas, a lot more land was made available for those wanting a place by the sea or just as an investment. This created an upswing in the Property Market and saw the opening of convenience stores and restaurants to support the growing need.
Properties range from Beachfront cottages to Majestic mansions on the hill with spectacular views of Table Mountain in the distance.
