Waenhuiskrans (wagon house cliff) is the highlight of a visit to Waenhuiskrans Nature Reserve in Arniston. What makes the Waenhuiskrans Cave so exciting is the low-tide leap-and-a-bit to reach it, over barnacle-encrusted rocks with one's eye on the sea for the odd freak wave.
After gingerly making your way across the rocks, which hug the edge of the cliffs that provide a rather tenuous support for your fingers but enough to maintain your balance, to the cave, you will need to navigate the small opening beneath a rocky overhang that takes you into the cave proper.
