Just over two hours drive from Cape Town in South Africa, on a route that winds through the hills of the Overberg lies the small fisherman’s town of Struisbaai. A place surrounded by safe pristine white beaches with a perfect turquoise sea, 8km from Cape Agulhas, Africa's Southernmost Point. This is also the place where the warmer water of the Indian Ocean and the colder water of the Atlantic Ocean meet. Struisbaai offers plenty to do and see such as hiking trails, charters, fishing, learn to Surf, great seafood restaurants and many attractions in the area. Spend the long sunny days on the beach, enjoying jogging, surfing, swimming, hiking, and horseback riding, kayaking, or boating. Art shops and fresh fish shops on your doorstep make Struisbaai a wonderful holiday destination. A visit to the most southern town of Africa, Suiderstrand, will be a spiritual experience. You will witness the endless heaps of perfect white pebbles, been washed back and front, creating an amazing natural symphony of music in your ears. A picture-perfect moment at sunset is the shipwreck of the Meisho Maru, a Japanese fishing vessel that stranded in 1982, an awesome sight to see just a few hundred metres down the road from the most Southern tip of Africa. The historic and majestic Waenhuiskraans Caves located near Arniston will utterly amaze you, and it is only 35 km form Struisbaai!
