The Top 21 Forbes Destinations For 2021 has just been released, and the little town of Gansbaai is proudly included.

On TripAdvisor's Outdoor Activities in the Western Cape, Gansbaai has achieved two in the top ten, out of over 1300: Gansbaai & Pearly Beach Horse Trails at #6, and Fatbikes at #8.

Not bad for the little town of Gansbaai, which also has a number of top fine-dining restaurants, five star accommodation, wine and craft beer producers, and loads more activities then mentioned on the Forbes & TripAdvisor links below. Gansbaai has an ethos as a "Responsible Tourism Destination" as well, with the Dyer Island Conservation Trust leading the way, protecting and preserving our coastline and marine life, including a penguin rescue sanctuary.

Visit for a day, stay for a week or longer, there's always something for everyone in and around the charming town of Gansbaai.
