South Africa’s West Coast is vast. Technically, it stretches from the city of Cape Town, all the way to the country’s border with Namibia some 450 odd miles away. But much closer to Cape Town is a small stretch of coast that’s easily accessible on a short day-trip or a long weekend drive.
Known by many locals simply as Weskus, the region includes dozens of great spots — from boutique wine farms and olive plantations, to craft breweries, cultural attractions, celebrated restaurants, and several ocean-based and outdoor activities. And all of these are less than 90 minutes away from Cape Town by car.
