White dunes and turquoise sea, bright-coloured fishing boats and white-washed cottages, a coastline peppered with shipwrecks, a sleepy village with two names. Make a two-and-a-half-hour drive from Cape Town and discover some of the best things to do in Arniston / Waenhuiskrans, from whale-watching and caving to fishing and snorkeling.

It’s perhaps best known for its pont across the Breede River but there are many other things to do in Malgas and the surrounding area too, from wine tasting and whale-watching to canoeing and fishing. Here are some of them.
