Britannia Bay, consisting of Old Britannia Bay, Flagship, Golden Mile (Boulevard) and Shelley Point forms the epicentre of St. Helena Bay, is situated on a peninsula and is rightfully named the Jewel of the West Coast due to its unsurpassed beauty. Vasco da Gama discovered the St Helena Bay in 1497, named it in honour of Saint Helena. A memorial was erected in 1969 to mark this occasion. Da Gama was on his pioneer voyage to the East when he weighed anchor in this Bay and remained here for a week. Visitors can enjoy long sandy beaches, pristine coastlines, natural beauty and quaint living. This area is also notorious for its wild flowers. People come here to relax in the peace and quiet of a tranquil country village with a bustling fishing harbour.
