Laaiplek is an angler's paradise and rows of anglers can ususally be seen on the breakwater leading into the harbour.

The quayside is a colourful collection of fishing vessels, most of them old-fashioned, brightly painted wooden boats, with names like: "Doloreze, Roseveld and Excalibur". Laaiplek's Harbour was the site of the first Fishing Factory and today there is still evidence of Fish Canning and Fish Industry.

Most of the fish caught here are Sardines or Haarders, which are then salted and hung out to dry - ride down Bokkoms Laan in Velddrif to see evidence of the Bokkoms hung on racks.

The Fishing Community is as colourful as it was in the past, and if you want to get a feel for the way of life here, stroll along the Quayside in the last afternoon, and join the Seagulls and the People who come to get a taste of the action!


Along the banks of the Berg River is a dirt road that is regarded, unofficially, as a national monument. Here large schools of harders are netted and turned into bokkoms. Bokkoms are harders (mullet) that are salted, then strung into bunches and hung up to dry. They are unique to this part of the West Coast and no visitor should leave before visiting this trail.

All along this road there are rows of fish strung on ropes under reed helters. Here women sit, with needle and string, tying up the little fish before salting them and hanging them to dry in the wind. Small fishing boats with oars, used for setting the harder net, lie alongside dilapidated old, wooden quays, adding to the quaintness and charm of this area.

Bokkoms are synonymous with Laaiplek. These dried fish are the biltong of the area. This unique, traditional delicacy is highly prized by initiates and best enjoyed with white wine, or with bread, apricot jam and black coffee.
