Rich in history and famous for its moderate climate and miles of pristine beaches and birdlife! This gem of a seaside village owes its origin to simple beginnings as a fishing village, like most of the surrounding South African coast villages, but is has become one of the major tourist attractions on the West Coast due to its moderate all year climate.
