The beautiful Langebaan is located in the Western Cape Province of South Africa.

In my opinion one of the main attractions in Langebaan is the Lagoon beach. Here, especially during summer time, you will find children playing on the beach and families enjoying the activities, like snorkeling, swimming and fishing; very much a family orientated coastal town.

With soft white sandy beaches surrounding the lagoon, long walks along the beach are a favorite activity among locals and visitors.
