There is nothing better than waking up in the morning and going for a stroll on the beach. It is deeply refreshing and a perfect way to start your morning. Those living here will tell you how blessed they are to be at the Southernmost Tip of Africa. There is something special about this lifestyle. Whether you are a fisherman, an avid beach explorer or even if you just enjoy the country, there is always something for you to find.
For the Fishermen
Whether you fish from a boat, cast on the rocks or go cob hunting on the beach, one thing is certain – this is a fishermen’s playground. You will always find a fisherman on the beach, no matter how strong the wind or how hard it rains. They will either be collecting bait, examining the water or trying to catch the big one. The fish of choice for local rock and beach anglers is cob and they will tell you the sooner you braai it, the better it tastes. For deep sea fishermen, there are plenty of shallow reefs to discover that are teaming with game fish - yellowtail is the most common catch on the fishing boats.
For the coastal explorer
If you’re not a fan of fishing but love the outdoors then meandering along the coast is just for you. Whether walking on the beach or exploring between the rocks and ponds, you will always find something that will tickle your interest. It can be anything from an item that washed out with the tide (apart from driftwood and exotic shells we have on occasion seen oranges and tackies and even boats), to wonderful spectacles of nature.
For the nature lover
Struisbaai and surroundings are spoiled with an abundance of nature at its doorstep. With Bredasdorp and Elim on your doorstep, you are in the hearty country by the sea, boasting an abundance of country roads leading to wine farms, quaint country towns, and spectacular country vistas. Bird lovers can expect to see a large array of bird species all year round while enjoying a luscious exhibition of flora that looks spectacular when in bloom.
Whether you want to do any kind of surfing, just watch the sunset or sit at the harbour while watching the fishing boats coming in with their catch, you will always find something interesting that will keep you entertained.
