Gansbaai - The Natural Adventure Destination

Get away from the hustle and bustle of busy city life, let down your hair, kick off your shoes and come to Gansbaai. Get back to basics with warm friendly people to welcome and pamper you.
So what makes Gans Bay cool? Simply it's natural, rugged and unspoilt beauty.

From the spectacular cliffs of De Kelders to the miles of white sandy beaches of Pearly Beach, you will find one of the most unique and astonishing land-based whale watching spots in the word.
Or onwards to Dyer Island where the mysterious and graceful Great White Sharks have drawn visitors from across the globe, hence Gansbaai having become known as the Great White Shark capital of the world. In the same vicinity just off Shark Alley, you will find an abundance of seals, being the hot spot restaurant of the great whites, not to mention the Penguin colony of Dyer Island.

Back on land, numerous caves along the cliffs of De Kelders beckon the visitor to explore and discover ancient secret wonders - while never ending sandy beaches provide for long uplifting and soul-searching walks. Vrious trails can be followed on the mountain and in the hills to discover fynbos that is awesome (some 1500 species), views that are striking, rare plants yet to be discovered and space that is not yet a luxury. Ancient milkwood forests grace the surroundings and are home to many an unknown insect, rodent and plant species waiting to be admired.

"..this little town is able to offer some of the world's best boat- and shore-based whale watching and unquestionably the world's best white-shark diving. The sensational marine tourist attractions should not be the only things to lure you, however. Some of the Cape's best-conserved fynbos adorns the mountains in the area and numerous walks and trails criss-cross it. The lighthouse at Danger Point is open to tourists, and you can climb the stairs to the revolving light and peer out at the restless waters that cover the remains of the famous Birkenhead wreck. After a week spent wandering the streets of Gansbaai and its surroundings, we can comfortably say that this, truly, is the gem of the Overberg."
