If you're a resident or even an annual visitor to Gansbaai, you’ve probably noticed a tortoise or two crossing the road...
Home to an abundance of biodiversity and natural splendour, the coastal village of Gansbaai has become known as the small fishing village with a Great White heart.
Stretching from the tip of the coastline where the famous Danger Point Lighthouse stands proudly to the endless white sandy beaches of Die Plaat and the ancient Milkwood forests that lie beyond, Gansbaai and it surrounds is a must-visit in the Overberg. With exciting activities like land-based whale watching and fatbike tours to great seafood restaurants and cosy lodgings – what more could you want for a relaxing getaway.
But don’t take our word for it, here is a look at the coastal village through the eyes of our listers:
