Arniston, for a blissful weekend.


Just on 2.5 hours from Cape Town along the East coast, lies a quaint fishing village that I feel love for. Arniston comprises of the Hotel, some guest houses and residential homes, the Kassisesbaai historical fishing settlement, one tiny convenience store, white beaches and turquoise oceans. As my previous posts confirm, my numerous visits here have been filled with relaxed happiness, this weekend was no different.


That said the weather was cold and rainy and we did more relaxing and eating than outdoor activities, which usually include a visit to the Waenhuiskrans Cave, sand boarding and swimming in the Ocean, which is quite a bit warmer than in Cape Town.

Many long walks were managed though, and this time I had my dogs with me, who had their first lease-free run on the beach. What a treat to see them enjoying the freedom.

We took a rental home from Arniston Letting for the weekend – they manage numerous rental properties in the area. The very well equipped Sea Cottage isset one street back from the ocean, offers 6 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and suits a large family or group of friends perfectly. Its also very affordable and in my opinion the best way to travel for a group of 9!

Time here truly does bring home how much I’d love to live near the Ocean, to hear the crashing of the waves, walk the beach and swim to the beacon. There is something very humbling about the constant reminder of the force of nature, and I long for it.
