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.
