Breede River

Malgas soon became a busy port. In particular wool, skins and dried aloe sap were traded here. In the beginning of the 20th century, the development of the railways and roads through the Overberg deprived the port of its importance.

Malgas is nowadays a holiday place. The southern bank of the river is one loose row of 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.
