The most Southern Point of Africa.
This is the place to go to relax, has enough site seeing areas and good area to just unwind. Wish we had more time to spend.
The amazing scenery.
The friendliness and the people. The choice of beaches and being able to take my little ones to collect shells. The drive out of CPT to Struisbaai is stunning and of course seeing the most southern point of Africa and visiting the light House in Agulhas.
I enjoyed the absolute friendliness of the residents of Struisbaai. No one passes you without greeting. What
further pleased me is the safe environment. No worries of theft or break ins.
More info about Struisbaai
Boasting the longest beach at 14km in length, the charming coastal village of Struisbaai lies near the tip of Africa. It’s along this coastline where the Indian and Atlantic oceans meet and where over the years, many a ship has come to grief, the last being the Meisho Maru Japanese fishing trawler that wrecked in 1982, still visible from shore.
The dazzling white beaches attract beachgoers while the historic lime-coated fishermen cottages and vast birdlife add to the appeal of Struisbaai.
The origin of the name Struisbaai is not clear; it was either named for the ostriches that once roamed here (the Dutch word for ostrich is struisvogel) or the fact that the fishermen built their homes using mud and straw (struis in Afrikaans). Irrespective, Struisbaai is a lovely holiday destination for families, fishermen, hikers, birders, surfing road trippers and those who enjoy water sports.
