Arniston / Waenhuiskrans
Picturesque Waenhuiskrans is best-known for the 200-year old restored fishermen's village, Kassiesbaai. This village, a national monument in its entirety, with its whitewashed, thatched cottages, has stolen the hearts of many an artist and photographer. The name Waenhuiskrans is derived from the big sea cave (waenhuis). The town is also called Arniston after the East Indiaman Arniston which was wrecked nearby in 1815 with a tragic loss of 372 lives. A replica of the monument, which was erected by the wife of Col. Giels in memory of their four sons who died in the tragedy, is to be seen in the shipwreck museum. The stone tablet is the original. A smaller replica which can be seen on the rocks in front of the hotel at Arniston, looks out on the spot about 5km east where the ship sank. Good catches lure both boat and rock anglers.
