Pack your bags and get ready for an adventure- this beach town is about as far south as you can go! Struisbaai attracts visitors with its beautiful beaches and laid-back feel. Once a thriving fishing town, you will still find many seamen and vessels here, but the town is now better known for its surfing, sightseeing, and good vibes. Book a Struisbaai vacation rental and experience the charm for yourself!
This town sits at almost the southernmost point of the African continent. South Africa's incredible coastlines are a huge pride and joy, and this area's sapphire-blue waters and white sands do not disappoint! It is a 135-mile drive southeast of bustling Cape Town, where you will likely fly in. About halfway sits the beach town of Hermanus, as well as several other charming small towns worth a visit if you wish to split up the drive.
It comes as no surprise that this town's pride is its gorgeous stretch of beach. Struisbaai Beach provides a beautiful expanse of white sand perfect for sunbathing or picnicking, and the enticing water is safe for swimming! Catch some waves with Robbie's Surfing Lessons, a local surf school perfect for beginners, or try your hand at windsurfing and kitesurfing if you want to add another element.
If you're looking for a unique encounter with nature, feed the friendly stingrays in the shallows and go snorkeling with vibrant fish. Afterward, grab a bite to eat at Pelican's Harbour Cafe back on shore. There are also plenty of opportunities in town for hiking, fishing, horseback riding, and more for the avid adventurers.
Struisbaai is a wonderful spot for a South African holiday at the coast. Let go of your worries here with a sunny afternoon on the beach or on horseback down a local trail - whatever kind of beach vacation you're after, you'll find it at our Struisbaai vacation rentals!
