About Waenhuiskrans

Arniston, Waenhuiskrans or Kassiesbaai? In reality all three names apply to this multi-faceted gem of a Southern Overberg coastal town. Arniston is a true mixture of, not only name, but many other things too.

The name Arniston commemorates an 1815 shipwreck; the Waenhuiskrans (wagon-house cliff) is so named after a massive limestone cave close by; and historic Kassiesbaai, a national heritage site, is one of the last remaining unspoiled fishing villages in the country.

Arniston is also known as Waenhuiskrans because of the magnificent limestone cave. You can get to this cave across the dunes to the west of Roman Beach. According to local lore, the cave is so big that wagons with a full span of oxen could turn around inside it. Waenhuiskrans can only be accessed at low tide.
