Malgas
Breede River Valley

Malgas became a busy port over the following years. Wool, animal hides and dried aloe sap in particular were traded here. At the beginning of the 20th century, the development of the railways and roads through the Overberg deprived the port of its purpose.

Malgas is nowadays a holiday place of exceptional beauty and peacefulness. The southern bank of the river is lined with idyllic holiday homes, each with its own jetty and motorboat. The people you meet here are mainly Capetonians seeking weekend relaxation and - last but not least - good fishing.

The nostalgic pontoon ferry at Malgas works on demand. It is the quickest connection to the northern banks of the river and further on to Witsand at the Breede River mouth. Accommodation and more tourist information you will find on the blue INFO page.
