About St Helena Bay (also nicknamed by locals as Agterbaai)
St. Helena is located on the Cape West Coast on the shore of the bay and is approximately 150 km north of Cape Town, South Africa. It surrounds the towns of Vredenburg and Paternoster and across the bay from Laaiplek. Saint Helena Bay is the only area along the South African Coast where the sun rises over the bay and sets again across the ocean. It is thus one of only a few places in the world where Sun-rise and Sun-set occurs over the ocean, offering spectacular views.
St Helena Bay is a small fishing town discovered in November 1497 by Vasco da Gama and his crew on the ship named ‘Sao Gabriel’. A stone monument was erected by Vasco da Gama, which is one of the local tourist attractions. Other than its history St Helena Bay offers various outdoor activities including golf, horse riding, fishing, scuba diving, surfing, mountain biking, camping and more. For the less adventurous, long walks on the various beaches and frequenting the many local pubs and restaurants is a must.
