The windswept West Coast South Africa has a desolate beauty about it. Sparsely populated, its small communities huddle around small harbours and cling to unbroken stretches of white sandy beaches set against turquoise waters. It’s a place to get lost in your thoughts, where its shore-angling for gamefish, walking through fields thick with wildflowers, stargazing in the crisp night air or hiking amongst the startling rock formations of the Cedarberg.
