BlueSky Guest House Arniston
- A deluxe Guesthouse in the quaint, tranquil village of Arniston only 450 m from the beach and historical fishing harbour. Arniston is a national monument and the only remaining historic fishing village in South Africa.
Ade and Jill Penny look forward to welcoming you to our home.
Arniston is a tranquil fishing village approx 210 km’s from Cape Town, on the Indian Ocean coast of South Africa. The village of Kassiesbaai boasts iconic white washed, thatched roof fishermans’ cottages. The Arniston sank here in 1815, only 6 of the 378 passengers survived the disaster.
There are pristine white sandy beaches, dotted with rock pools to explore. Prehistoric fish traps made by the Khoisan strandlopers (beach walkers) still remain along the coastline. These stone built enclosures trap fish at high tide. Waenhuiskrans means wagon house cliff, big enough to house a wagon and oxen.
