Just two hours from Cape Town is one of the oldest fishing villages along South Africa’s West Coast. With it’s bright, wild flowers which bloom in Spring, white-washed cottages with blue shutters and a long beach, it’s one of the prettiest places along the coast and still maintains it’s raw, seaside charm.
It is a well-known for its crayfish, mussels, fish and abalone, but particularly for the West Coast delicacy called Bokkoms. Bokkoms is dried, salted Southern Mullet known locally as ‘harders’. Luckily I was able to capture a group of fishermen who had just reeled in their catch of the day- harders ready to be transformed into Bokkoms or used as bait.
