The West Coast National Park was first established in 1973, when the lagoon was proclaimed a marine reserve. In 1988 Langebaan was declared a RAMSAR site dedicated to wetlands preservation. The park today not only incorporates conservation efforts of the lagoon and wetlands, but also the islands in Saldhana Bay, as well as contractual land along the West Coast.
The Park is home to the largest salt marsh in South Africa, and the lagoon is totally marine, dense in population of molluscs and crustaceans. It is also home and a nursery to various endemic fish species. The Islands are also home to 250 000 endemic birds, such as Cape Gannets, Cormorants, and Kelp Guls.
The vegetation is predominantly Strandveld and partly plain fynbos which is highly threatened. The flowers are a large attraction during Springtime.
Other attractions to the Park include:
• Eves footprint (Fossilised human footprints)
• Outdoor activities for the family
