 Additional Information

Almost at Gans Baai, which is where the British war ship HMS Birkenhead sank, is a small cluster of houses along a dusty road, right along a rocky stretch of coast metres from the sea. At the end of the road, right in the corner near a large Strandloper midden and interesting caves, is a fun but fickle little beachbreak that hardly anyone surfs. It's fun though and some barrelly lefts and rights can be had. Word has it that more waves can be found further down this long beach, which basically goes all the way to Hermanus, a beautiful town famous for whale watching. Also some great reef breaks around. Simular to Ganbaai.
