Hondeklip Bay has a unique and intriguing history of diamond digging, shipwrecks, and fishing stories gone wrong. Read more about the history here.
Hondeklip Bay is separated from Springbok by 104km of gravel road, the Messelpad Pass and Soebatsfontein, a quaint village built next to a spring at the foot of the escarpment. However, it would usually take around 2 hours to reach the town.
Hondeklip Bay’s harbour, from which copper ore brought by ox-wagon from Springbok was exported before the port was supplanted by Port Nolloth, now serves fishing and diamond-mining boats.
Hondeklip Bay is known for the following activities:
Long walks on secluded beaches.
A lighthouse to admire.
Crayfishing: In season, a permit obtained in Springbok or Garies will allow you to dive for crayfish.
Scenic drives: Especially during the flower season, circular routes back to the N7 make for spectacular scenic drives.
Shipwrecks: Hondeklip Bay is a good base when wanting to explore the shipwrecks nearby. The wreck of the Aristea that ran aground in 1945 is south of the town.
You can also visit ancient caves, old ruins and many more.
