CBWC: Your pick

Cee’s Black and White Challenge

Time stands still on a walk along Bokkomlaan, the heritage heart of Velddrif. 

Velddrif is the heart of the fishing industry on the West Coast. Many visitors go there and miss this undiscovered gem. Until now. Cross the Carinus Bridge and take a right along Voortrekker Road. At the Heritage Site sign (on your left) turn right. This takes you to the gravel road of Bokkomlaan.
