The area lays claim to the De Hoop Nature Reserve which covers 60 000 hectares of endangered fynbos. This reserve is home to South Africa's largest population of Bontebok and also the endangered Mountain Zebra. An ideal spot for game viewing and birdwatching (South Africa's national bird, the Blue Crane, can be seen too).

Whilst here, it would be recommended to take a look through the Shipwreck Museum which is filled with artifacts remaining from the many ships which have sunk along the treacherous coast of Agulhas. Other places to see include Kapula Candles, Julian Ceramics and the Audrey Blignault Room which pays homage to this famous writer. There is also an airfield nearby where exciting airshows are held. Something to get your adrenalin pumping in this otherwise lazy town.
