Hessequa Municipality



Hessequa is located in the Eden district of the Western Cape, on the N2 at the start of the Garden Route. It lies at the foot of the Langeberg Mountains with her boundaries stretching along the southern Cape coast from the Breede River in the west to Gouritsmond in the east. The total area of Hessequa is approximately 5730 km2.

The most prominent oceanographic feature of the region is the Agulhas current that carries warm tropical water south-westwards past the south c
