A choice of many unspoiled white sand beaches abound along this coastline. Because they are under the influence of the Indian Ocean currents the wind is not so cool.

We spent 3 afternoons on the dunes trying to surf down them. We attempted it with cardboard, wood and boogieboards; TO NO AVAIL. If you know how to get down these massive dunes please drop me a line! Quite near the beach parking lot .......More

This is a place that is as wild as you choose to make it by simply getting further away from the Arniston village. We ran to the military fence and back. There wasn't another foot print to be seen ! Going 3 kmfurther west, from...More

Unless you want a long walk you must come here by 4x4. You feel that you are at the end of the world. Would probably be a great spot to see the sunset, although not sure about the drive back. Evidence of ilegal abalone fishing,...More

Visited 20 years ago as a kid and always thought it was miles and miles with a 4x4. This time walked and it was 15 minutes if so. Great fishing area. All four caught some fish.

Arniston seems to have the most beautiful soft white sand so the rolling dunes stretching out on both sides of the village are really special. Great for kids to run up and down and try there hand with a cardboard box or board to slide...More

It's quite a long trek to the very end of "Die Plaat" but those wanting a good work out will enjoy the walk. Partly on loose sand (great for the legs), but also on dunes where the sand is nice and firmly compacted. So much...More

Not really walking distance so unless you are fortunate to own a vehicle to get to the furthest point then I would not recommend this trip. Awesome sunset views, or even a brunch on a gas stove is also nice. This area is also occupied...More
