Geography and History

Arniston was founded in 1815 after a British transport ship HMS Arniston sank. This town is also known as Waenhuiskraans, which roughly translated means "Wagon shelter cliff", as a large cave in the area reminded farmers of the large shelters wagons were kept in. The cave is only accessible at low tide for an hour or two.

Arniston is roughtly two-hour drive from Cape Town. The drive meanders through the beautiful rolling hills of this region. Arniston is set in one of the Cape`s most exquisite locations, next to an old fishing village, surrounded by pristine beaches and nature reserves.
