Once a quaint fishermen’s village where descendants of South Africa’s first nation, the Khoisan people, and several freed slaves settled to live off the plentiful bounty of seafood available along this stretch of the Western Cape coastline, Arniston has graduated into a fashionable holiday resort.
The area is renowned for the fishermen cottages, the ancient sea cave and the wreck that occurred here in the early 1800s, leaving only 6 survivors of the 378 passengers and crew. The village was subsequently named after the wreck.
Arniston is enjoyed by artists and photographers who are presented with a spectacular scene of old fishermen cottages standing starkly against a backdrop of surrounding natural beauty, and with fishermen and water sports enthusiasts for the excellent fishing opportunities and the challenging seas.
