THE ONE AND ONLY PLACE.
Are you looking around for that one and only place to walk away from all the pressure you are living with? This stand is waiting. Do not postpone. Make the smart move and buy it now. Kleinbaai is a picturesque little village nestling amongst milkwood trees and summer daisies. Its situation on the eastern side of Gansbaai, makes it the ideal launching site for local fisherman to fish in the Dyer Island area. Stories of the big white predators were numerous and led to the establishment of the now very popular shark expeditions. These nature based tourism activities resulted in Gansbaai becoming well known as the great White Shark capital of the world. The shark diving, whale watching, Dyer and Geyser Island tours all operate from the boat launching facilities at the small but natural harbour of Kleinbaai. A tarred road connects Kleinbaai along the rugged coast with many rockpools to the lighthouse at Danger Point. Hikers can explore the beautiful coastline by using the tracks left in the sandstone by hundreds of fishermen\'s vehicles along this stretch of coastline. A tidal pool allows for safe swimming and for the sportsman there is a golf course and a squash court. Gansbaai came into being in the early 1880’s as a result of the great fishing opportunities it presented. It got its name from the freshwater fountain in the harbour which was frequented by the “kolgans” thus Gansbaai or Bay of Geese. Gansbaai is the name for the area which encompasses the towns of De Kelders, Perlemoenbaai, Franskraal, Klipfonteyn, Kleinbaai, Blompark, Masakhane, Pearly Beach and Baardskeerdersbos. This is an area ruled by the ocean and blessed with floral abundance. Towering over Walker Bay, the cliffs of De Kelders are known for the world’s best land-based whale watching. Around Dyer Island in Shark Alley adventure lovers can enjoy magical encounters with the Great White Shark hence the “nickname” Great White Shark Capital of the World. Birders, hikers and horse-riders know the unspoilt fynbos-covered hinterland of Gansbaai as one of the main sanctuaries of localised and endemic plant-species on earth and a refuge for hundreds of bird-species. Long stretches of empty sand-beaches especially in Pearly Beach are ideal for uplifting walks. Magnificent sunsets have rounded off every day since earliest modern man first sat in the Klipgat Cave 90’000 years ago. Visitors to the area are amazed at the amount of activities to partake in yet the area has remained unspoilt and is an ideal spot for recharging ones batteries. An area to explore full of secret wonders.
