General Information

Bitterfontein is a small village located in the West Coast region of the Western Cape, South AfricaBitterfontein is a village in the Knersvlakte, 320 kilometres (200 mi) North of Cape Town

Although not much more in Bitterfontein than the hotel, a few shops and a railway station, the town does have its little perks and has a few interesting facts. The towns name comes from the bitter really brackish water, which is still the main source even after all these years.  Because of this the town had to do something to alter the water that it provides.  It therefore boasts the first desalination plant to purify drinking water for a town in the southern hemisphere. The plant and the salt pans are clearly visible from the road.
