General Information

This quaint little fishing community is situated in the Overberg region of the Western CapeSouth Africa.​  Founded in 1815 after a British transport ship HMS Arniston sank, the town is also known as Waenhuiskraans, which roughly translated means "Wagon shelter cliff".  There is a large cave in the area where large wagons were kept in - the cave is only accessible at low tide for an hour or two.

Arniston is roughly a two-hour drive from Cape Town. The drive meanders through the beautiful rolling hills of this region, and is a beautiful one, surrounded by pristine beaches and nature reserves.

Arniston remains an unspoiled town and has been declared a national monument in its entirety. Fishermen still go to sea in boats of the style that would have been familiar to locals in the early nineteenth century, although now under contract to larger commercial enterprises.
