The Anglo-Boer War was a devastating one; one that took the lives of many Europeans and African soldiers and their families. But, it remains an integral part of the South African identity, and a key feature of its history books. To a large extent, it influenced the present-day society, which is a colourful array of languages, cultures and colours; making South Africa one of the most delightfully diverse nations in the world.

The Anglo-Boer War Memorial in Stilbaai was erected next to the road in 2001 to commemorate 100 years since a significant battle. On 12 September 1901, Jan Theron (a Boer commander) led his troops to meet the District Mounted Troops and the Riversdale Town Guards (under the command of Lieutenant Smalberger). This was to be the southernmost Anglo-Boer battle ever to have taken place in South Africa.

Today, Stilbaai is a surfing hotspot, thanks to its beautiful beaches and great weather conditions. Of course, it is also a fantastic spot to swim, suntan and revel in the gorgeous views that the lovely Western Cape has to offer.
