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.
