West Coast Diamond Experience


The West Coast Diamond Experience, with its flowing dunes and mysterious shipwrecks is a rugged, nature experience along the unexplored north-west coast of South Africa’s Northern Cape. These shores have remained virtually unknown to the public at large as it is within the restricted and previously forbidden diamond mining areas.

The route runs along the coast from Groenrivier mouth until Port Nolloth and is ideal if you are looking for peace, tranquillity and adventure. However many of the roads on the route are not accessible to ordinary cars and more suitable for 4×4. The delightful coastal village of Hondeklipbaai has a few guesthouses for those wishing for a little luxury.

Travellers please note:

There is no fuel available on Hondeklip Bay and fuel is only available in Kleinzee and Koiingnaas from 05:00 – 20:00 on weekdays and from 08:00 – 12:00 on Saturdays.

Certain stretches of road may require access permits and it is therefore recommended that travellers enquire before visiting the area.
