The unpretentious, picturesque seaside village of Lambert's Bay lies up the West Coast, 280 kilometres north of Cape Town. The coastal town has been proclaimed 'the Diamond of the West Coast' because of its white beaches, wildlife and lobsters. Although primarily a fishing town it has become a significant tourist attraction on the West Coast due to its moderate all-year climate.
