Swartland is situated in the West Coast District, bordering the Atlantic Ocean in the west, the City of
Cape Town in the south, the Cape Winelands District to the east and Saldanha Bay Municipality,
Bergrivier to its north and northeast. The largest towns in Swartland include Malmesbury,
Moorreesburg, Darling, Riebeeck West, Riebeeck Kasteel and Yzerfontein. Malmesbury as an
administrative centre of the Municipality, has a diversified economic base, which includes agriculture,
as well as a diversified industrial sector and infrastructure, and although tourism does not currently play
a major role, this avenue can be explored.
