The Southern-most tip of Africa! A visit to the Overberg is not complete without this destination. With about 250 shipwrecks this dramatically tragic coastline makes for some interesting history. The Cape Agulhas Lighthouse and Lighthouse Museum are both highlights of the visit, while the more actively inclined visitor will enjoy the walks, swimming, fishing and diving the town has to offer.
A Moravian Mission station established in 1824, this little town remains virtually intact today.
