Self-catering accommodation in Weanhuiskrans
Situated in the historic seaside town of Arniston, self-catering accommodation in Waenhuiskrans gives holidaymakers the opportunity to enjoy a refreshing and relaxing break by the sea. Back in 1815, a British ship named Arniston was rounding Cape when it got separated from its convoy and ran onto the rocks in what was formerly named Waenhuiskrans. As only six of 378 sailors survived the wreckage of the Arniston, the area has gradually taken on the name of the ship. Today, both names are used interchangeably and this town is still celebrated for its rich mariner history.
Adventurous seafaring history aside, Waenhuiskrans is an exceptional area to enjoy a holiday along the coastline in. The fresh smell of the ocean coupled with the small town charm of the area means that whether you visit for a weekend getaway or a long-stay vacation, you can enjoy the combination of tranquillity and bustling entertainment.
