Although a bit windy on the day we visited Struisbaai and not being during ‘season’ just yet we could still get a vibe for this pretty seaside town located in the Cape Agulhas region of the Western Cape. Colourful fishing boats bobbed in the harbour and children swam and boogie-boarded in the waves (don’t children ever feel the cold?!). A boardwalk through part of the dunes makes for easy walking and the views of the beaches are worth seeing – whether it’s windy or not!
During the summer months Struisbaai enjoys a healthy amount of visitors who come to the town to enjoy the water sports on offer. It’s easy to launch a kayak or small boat from the beach while kite-surfing and boarding are also popular. Struisbaai, like many of the coastal villages in this region boasts quaint white-washed fishermen’s houses and newer houses must follow the design of the original cottages. If in the town make sure you visit the Anglican church which is now a National Monument.
