The coast town has been proclaimed 'the Diamond of the West Coast' because of its white beaches, wildlife and lobsters. Although primarily a fishing town it has become a significant tourist attraction on the West Coast due to its moderate all-year climate.
The town also hosts the Crayfish Festival. The largest employer in the town is Lamberts Bay Foods, owned by Famous Brands, which produces French fries as well as other potato related products and employs 305 people.
Lambert's Bay is named after Admiral Lambert of the British Navy who did a marine survey of the bay between 1826 and 1840.
In 1887 Mr Stephan bought the commercial buildings and built the hotel in 1888. Lambert's Bay was used as a lay-up for British warships during the war of 1900–1902 and in 1901 HMS Sybille was wrecked opposite Steenbokfontein.
The first crayfish factory was started by Mr Lindström in 1918.
