Waenhuiskrans Caves, Arniston

#3 of 8 in Nature in Overberg District
Cave · Nature / Park
Delve into Waenhuiskrans Caves, a large sea cave and a landmark of the surrounding nature reserve. Take care making your way down to the cave: the route includes a couple of crevices to climb over, and the rugged rocks covered in barnacles are sometimes slippery. Once you reach the cave and your eyes adjust to the dark, you'll see just how large it is--as they say, big enough to fit a wagon and a full span of oxen in it.

  • Probably one of the most beautiful cave structures to be found anywhere. Like people say, go there during low tide for the best experience. And watch your footing :)
  • Better time to Visit the place is at the time of low tide or else you wont be even able to go near the cave. Also take precaution while walking the whole way to the cave as chances are there for sandy winds. Need to walk around 1 km if you are not going in a 4*4 car.
