At the Arniston Beach you can relax and take a step back in time. The soft white sand is contrasted by the rugged rocks of the coastline. Spend your morning watching the fisherman taking their boats out to sea. Many of the local fishermen live in the quaint thatched roof houses on the beach, you’ll spot them easily with their lime-washed walls. Make sure you’re at the shoreline again in the evening to welcome the fishermen home and see what they have caught.

The beach sand is perfect for building a sandcastle so young or old you can spend some time letting the sand run through your fingers and connecting with nature. If you feel like being a little more active the water is ideal for swimming and you might even catch a wave or two on your surf board if you’re lucky. Photographers will enjoy the area for the abundant photo opportunities choose from the historical buildings, jagged coastline, hardworking fisherman and many other stolen moments.
