There are three swimming beaches within a 15min walk of the house. Bredasdorp is the nearest shopping centre which is 25 km away. The Arniston Hotel has a health and beauty spa, restaurant and gift shop. There is a beach shop for ice-creams and soft drinks.
Walk or run 6 km each way along the beach at low tide. Look out for the monument to the Arniston ship wreck along the way. Explore the Waenhuiskrans cave - big enough to turn a wagon - hence the name. Walk to the point and see the stone fishing traps used for centuries. Admire the traditional fishing cottages (Cassiesbaai) and watch the fishing boats go out or come in with their catch. Willeen makes great fishcakes at Willeen’s Art, Craft and Restaurant. Swim in the azure blue sea, paddle a kayak or fly a kite... have sun downers on the dunes.
