About Arniston:
Arniston is a tranquil fishing village approx 210 kms 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.
