Places To See

De Kelders, the place that the Southern Right Whales call home! On the R43 beyond Stanford you will find a residential area called De Kelders. “De Kelders” is the Afrikaans name for The Caves. Numerous larger and smaller caves penetrate deep into the rock formations under the houses of De Kelders.

There is a great coffee shop and restaurant called Coffee on the Rocks, overlooking the bay. You will find it in Cliff Street. Just drive all the way down to the sea and turn right. It is truly unique and a good vantage point for whale watching!

 

The Klipgat Cave, in the Walker Bay Nature Reserve, is one of the most important cultural assets in the Western Cape. The remains found in the cave date back to the Middle Stone Age people as well as the Khoisan. The Klipgat Trail is a path meandering along the coast from Gansbaai Harbour to Klipgat Cave. Maps and information about this 7km trail are available from the:
