Yzerfontein’s sunny climate, low rainfall, small craft harbour and lack of industry is a haven for nature lovers, sun seekers, water sport enthusiasts or those who simply desire a more relaxed way of life. A strong local Residents Association plays an active role in keeping the town secure and pristine. Ocean Villas is close to many places of interest, such as the West Coast National Park, the West Coast Fossil Park, Khwa tau San Culture Education Centre and the Buffelsfontein Game and Nature Reserve. There are several golf courses nearby, and Darling is just 15 km inland with its annual flower shows,art galleries, vineyards,and the ever-popular Evita se Peron.
Yzerfontein infrastructure continues to grow with a brand new SPAR and more! Today Yzerfontein retains its unique West Coast charm. The peacefulness of the region belies its close proximity to Cape Town, and every day is a tableaux of white sand, blue water and clear fresh West Coast air.
