History of Struisbaai PDF Print E-mail

ImageThis popular holiday venue is developing rapidly – and is well-known for its 14km uninterrupted white beach.  Water sports are particularly popular.  Struisbaai, according to legend, is named for the size of its big beach – an old Nederland word for “huge”.

Hotagterklip cottages:  Restored fisherman’s cottages at the entrance to Struisbaai, built by early fishermen.  Some are now used as holiday homes, and all are national heritage sites.

Anglican Church:  This small restored thatched church, which is a national heritage site, is much sought after for small weddings en services.

Shell shops:  A must for the collector and browser.

Harbour:  The quaint little harbour, built in 1959, was deepened and enlarged in 1990 and is today used by both fishing and ski boats.
