Accommodation near Lappiesbaai

Lappiesbaai is a popular beach in Stilbaai, a small holiday town in the Western Cape, about 3.5 hours from Cape Town. It is an ideal place to pass a summer's day, especially given its Blue Flag status.

The name Lappiesbaai literally translates into 'Bay of Rags', a name earned from the locals' habit of drying their clothes on the shrubs near the beach. This is no longer the case but the name has stuck.

Lappiesbaai is a special place where the Gaukau River meets the Indian Ocean. During the winter months (June-September), the whale watching is top class from the beach. Furthermore, the surrounding vegetation is a haven for birds and bird-watchers alike.

Prolific birdlife and excellent whale-watching aside, Stilbaai (including Lappiesbaai) is a favourite beach holiday destination due to its mild climate. In summer it is rarely scorching hot while visitors don't freeze in the winter. The ocean is also warm making swimming a pleasant experience for most of the year.

Some activities that people partake in given the great weather include the usual beach things - sun tanning, volleyball, and swimming- as well as slightly more specialised ones such as fishing. Lappiesbaai offers good fishing both from the rocks at the end of the beach and from the beach itself.

Perhaps its most important claim to fame is Lappiesbaai beach's Blue Flag status. The Blue Flag is awarded to beaches based on a list of criteria which cover environmental education and information, water quality, environmental management and safety and services. To put it simply, Lappiesbaai's Blue Flag status means that the beach water is clean, the environment in and around the beach is protected and respected, the services such as toilets and drinking water are good and that patrons are physically safe thanks to a life guard(s) on duty.

Stilbaai Reviews

Stilbaai
A pretty seaside town. We enjoyed our museum visit, the walk around the Brak garden and the tour of the gin distillery. The biltong at Vrek Lekker was also good!

Stunning town, a really great place to go if you just want to put your feet up and recharge. There aren't many options for eating out at night, but the places available are nice enough.
