Area Attractions

The region surrounding Arniston in which your self-catering accommodation is situated, is known as the Overberg – an expanse of rugged mountains, vast landscapes, rolling sand dunes and bizarre wind and marine erosion. Below are just a few of the magnificent attractions found in the region.
Kassiesbaai Fishing Village In Arniston itself, the pretty thatched fishermen houses of Kassiesbaai date back to the early 19th Century. The oldest part of Arniston, the village has been declared a South African National Monument. The community numbers just over 100 and is unlikely to grow as you have to be born there to be able to live there. Visitors, artists and photographers are welcomed. Kassies Fishing Village
De Mond Nature Reserve  Considered a wetland of National importance, the De Mond Reserve offers 14 kilometres of pristine dunes to discover and explore. Birdwatchers will discover many rare species. The Reserve is important for the continued existence of the Damara tern Sterna balaenarum. This southern African endemic is possibly the rarest resident sea bird in South Africa. The De Mond reserve is one of the very few confirmed breeding areas of this species. De Mond Nature Reserve
Bontebok National Park Just 6 kilometres outside of the nearby historical town of Swellendam, the Bontebok National Park is a game reserve dedicated to the conservation of the rare and beautiful Bontebok antelope. With magnificent views across the Breede River, the Park is also home to the numerous other small buck species. A total of 126 different bird species have also been identified here.

Cape Agulhas  Technically the southernmost point of Africa, Cape Agulhas is a windswept and desolate stretch of coastline exemplified by the numerous shipwrecks dotted along the rugged coast. Officially the point where the Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet, the waters off Cape Agulhas are known as the best fishing grounds in South Africa. Built in 1848, the beautiful old red and white lighthouse is still operational today and is well worth a visit. Cape Algulhas
De Hoop Nature Reserve  The De Hoop Nature Reserve comprises a spectacular stretch of the coast with huge sand dunes and secluded bays. Mountain zebras and many antelopes graze on the Fynbos vegetation. This Marine Reserve is home to the largest nursery of the Southern Right whales on this coastline and the area known as Koppie Alleen is voted as one of the best land-based whale watching sites in the world.
