Situated on the estuary of the Goukou River, that spills into the Indian Ocean, the town is characterized by long stretches of sandy beaches – boasting the prestigious Blue Flag Status. The river is navigable for 15km’s, making it quite the hotspot for water-sports such as canoeing and kayaking. Stilbaai is also home to rich historical- and archaeological sites and is always mentioned when speaking of Fynbos Gin and The Cradle of Human Culture. The coastal town of Stilbaai is a space where the magic of personal reinvention occurs.
Still Bay is the perfect holiday destination! The shallow bay, the clean stretches of sandy beaches, (of which “Lappiesbaai” has Blue Flag status during the Dec – Jan holiday season), the lagoon and the 15 kilometres long navigable Goukou river make Still Bay such a treat over the holiday season!
Water Sports abound: swimming, sunbathing, surfing, windsurfing, kite surfing, angling, walking, sailing, canoeing, boating and waterskiing.
The vegetation in the area consists mainly of coastal Fynbos, including wild olives and numerous proteas.
Still Bay lies on the “Cape Whale Route” and in whale season (July - November) you can observe whale mothers playing with their calves. Whale watching is a must and the dedicated whale watching view point above the harbour is an excellent viewing point.
