The Anchorage
The Anchorage

A glimpse of what to do

Stilbaai is made up of the sea, the river,the town and the hills.

There are a number of lovely places to swim. They include the beach just to the left of the river mouth and the beach just to the right of the river mouth where all the old houses are. There are a number of magnificent walks in and around the beaches. Always walk with someone. Dogs are not allowed on the beaches. You can take a 10km walk from Stilbaai to Jongensfontein or you can take a walk from the east side up to Preekstoel along a stunning beach.

It is great to swim in the river and just float with the tide. The river water is normally a little warmer than the sea water. Don't swim close to the river mouth because the current is much stronger there. You can hire a boat or a canoe and take a slow trip up the river. Just beware of sandbanks. Pack a basket and have a meal along the banks.

In the hills around Stilbaai there are many paths. In it's own way it is a little paradise and you will see animals and birds and some unique flowers. Make sure you have a camera with you. You should see many varieties of "fynbos" which is an indigenous flowering plant of which there are many species.

You can surf , kitesurf , windsurf or paddle on your surfski. Many now have fishing skis and if you are a keen fisherman then you can find good spots along the river or in the surf. Ask one of the locals to give you some directions. The fellows at the fishing shops know best.

People in Stilbaai are friendly and will speak to you in your chosen language. If you want to know something just stop and ask. Relax & Enjoy.
