Struisbaai is a quaint little fishing village in the Overberg region of the Western Cape. With one of the longest uninterrupted white beaches in the Southern hemisphere, this popular little holiday town promises white-washed fishermen’s houses, colourful fishing boats, a working harbour, and plenty of coastal charm. Struisbaai prides itself on its beautiful beach that stretches 14 km from Struisbaai to Arniston. The beach is a fantastic spot for water sports like kayaking, boating, surfing, body boarding, fishing, and kite surfing, as well as shell collecting, beach strolls, and whale watching. Keep an eye out for the beautiful giant stingrays that live in these sheltered waters, some of which are 2 m long.
Attractions include the Anglican Church, now a national monument and De Hoop Nature and Marine Reserve with its 7 ecosystems, an abundance of wildlife, bird life, and Fynbos. Go fishing at De Mond Nature Reserve and explore the Heuningnes River and estuary brimming with rare bird species like the giant tern, black oystercatcher, and damara tern. Nature lovers will enjoy the reserve’s hiking trails leading through Fynbos and undulating dunes.
