This sleepy fishing village has become Hot Public Property thanks to the Great White Shark who has chosen its local waters as his hunting ground. This predator, the beast of legends, is an object of gruesome fascination. Largely misunderstood, they are feared by most and loved only by photographers, thrill seekers and wacko marine biologists (but not by their moms).

Here there are peaceful cliff walks to meander, whales to watch and fish to catch. Not to mention plenty of seabirds and seals - the Great White’s most favourite snack (after humans in crunchy cages).

One of the most unusual geological features of this coastline is a series of underground pools known as the Drup Kelders (dripping cellars). These natural caves have a few stalagmites and stalactites and crystal pools that make for juicy swimming.
