Jacobsbaai is referred to Namaqualand by the sea. Dolphin and whale watching is on everybody’s list that visits the town. Jacobsbaai has rocky and sandy bays, cosy beaches and an abundance of seafood. The local hotel known as Die WeskusPlek has a lovely restaurant on the rocks. Visitors can pick and choose between guest houses on the beach or more tucked away in town. It must be said that one can walk from every plot to the various beaches. The West Coast architecture is set amongst rocks, coves, sandy beaches and a blue ocean at Jacobsbaai. It creates an ambience smacking of the romance of a Greek Island – However it remains absolutely authentic WEST COAST.
