Strandfontein & Doringbaai

Strandfontein & Doringbaai

Only a 20 minute drive from MELKBOOMSDRIFT GUEST HOUSE, Strandfontein is situated on the mouth of the Olifant's River. Strandfontein ("beach fountain") evolved from being an insignificant rural beach resort to a bustling tourist mecca during the wild flower season (August/September) and during the South African summer season (November to February) and Easter holidays (March/April).

No matter what time of year, you are sure to come away from this beautiful coastal resort with memories of balmy summer nights, spectacular sunsets, water sports and the most delicious fresh crayfish (lobster) meals amongst others.

Strandfontein has become one of the main holiday resorts in South Africa for the observation of Southern Right whales which come close into the protective bay during their calving season. At this time, you will most certainly spot the Southern Rights frolicking in the bay with their babies close by.

During the bustling Summer holiday season there are Christian groups who arrange several activities locally for young and old who are energetic enough for a game of volleyball or cricket on the beach.

After a fun filled day, return to Melkboomsdrift for a welcome sundowner in the beautiful gardens overlooking the endless vineyards of the Melkboomsdrift Lodge.
