Franskraal is the oldest residential area in Gansbaai which overlooks the entire coastline from Kleinbaai to Pearly Beach. The rocky shoreline and various walkways meandering through lush fynbos thickets provide an utopia for hikers, birders, rock and beach anglers and is a ideal spot for family picnics. The epic beach stretches all the way past the Uilenkraal estuary and the popular Gruisgat fishing spot to Pearly Beach and is a paradise for both water and beach activities. It is the only beach in the area where life-guards are on duty at the designated swimming area during peak season.
A huge assortment of weekend and holiday accommodation - from caravan and camping facilities at Uilenkraalsmond to luxurious guesthouses and B&B's – heeds to the needs of all creeds and breeds. Unbelievable sea and mountain views are obligatory!
