Atlantic Gull is a monthly publication celebrating life on the Western Seaboard and West Coast. It started in 2007 as a newsletter for Atlantic Beach Estate, but since 2012 it has evolved into a fully-fledged lifestyle publication for everyone on the West Coast.

We cover news from Blouberg to Bitterfontein and everything in between: stand-out places to go, thrilling adventures, bang-on eateries and restaurants, must-buy wines, getaway options that delight, the indigenous flora and fauna, recipes for local fare, as well as sage lifestyle advice.

The magazine is distributed to each home on several security estates: Atlantic Beach, Dune Ridge, Water’s Edge, La Paloma and Sunset Links. Homeowners on many high-end Bloubergstrand, West Beach, Waves Edge, Flamingo Vlei, Bloubergsands and Sunningdale roads also receive a copy, as well as batches to Starke Ayres Nursery, Pick ‘n Pay and Checkers outlets, Food Lover’s Market, coffee shops and a few hairdressers from Milnerton to Duynefontein.
