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. The name Waenhuiskrans is derived from the big sea cave (waenhuis = wagon house). The town is also called Arniston after the East Indiaman Arniston wrecked nearby in 1815 with a tragic loss of 372 lives.

I love the Arniston dunes. The best is to walk all the way to the top, sit, and look at the ocean... :)

Pass through the fishing village of Kassiesbaai to reach Arniston’s sculpted dunes.

Me too!

Remember when Sesame Street used to make Big Bird think he was going crazy by making Snuffleupagus an imaginary friend that only he could see?
