Arniston is locally known as Waenhuiskrans. Picturesque Waenhuiskrans is best known for its 200-year old restored fishermen’s village, Kassiesbaai. This village, a national heritage site, with its whitewashed thatched cottages, has stolen the hearts of many an artist.

They help themselves to lots of seafood, homebaked bread, homemade preserves ..... Informal to the extreme. We are West Coast people and boats have iconic status.
