Geography and History

Discovered by Portuguese explorer Vasco da Gama in 1497, St Helena Bay, known locally as 'Die Agterbaai', is one of the world's prime fishing centres. Fed by the nutrient-rich Benguela current, the waters teem with marine life, which provides the livelihood for its coastal inhabitants.

Endemic Heaviside dolphins, as well as dusky and common dolphins visit the bay in search of food, and the calm waters give shelter to the southern right whales that come to mate and calve in the second half of the year - and can easily be seen from the shore. Humpback and killer whales are also frequent visitors.

Accommodation

St Helena Bay has a variety of accommodation options available from Guest Houses, Bed and Breakfasts to Self-catering units.

St Helena Bay is also a bird watcher's paradise and being at the southernmost point of the migratory route from Europe and the Steppes of Russia makes it a must-visit spot for twitchers.
