Struisbaai Photographs

Send to Kindle

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.

About 

After living in London and travelling the world for many years and more recently living in the Mother City, I now reside on a tranquil sugar cane farm in Kearsney; an area steeped in the history of South Africa’s sugar industry. During the summer months I get involved with the community by assisting the local primary school with swimming lessons at our country club. Some of my favourite things are reading or picking freshly grown vegetables and Iceland poppies in our garden. Milly, my boxer loves her walks to the river that runs through our farm and sometimes, Sandy the cat I hand reared, joins us for a stroll!
