BlueSky Guest House
2 night stay for 2 people including breakfast and a bottle of wine from one of our local vineyards, to the value of R2 700
BlueSky Guest House is situated in Arniston/Waenhuiskrans, a coastal village on the Indian Ocean in the Western Cape. The village is a popular fishing resort. It is also known as Arniston as a ship bearing this name wrecked in the bay on 30th May, 1815. Only 6 of 378 people survived.
At the Arniston Beach you can relax and enjoy the soft white sandy beaches. Whales come to the Arniston coastline each year from May to October, with peak viewing times being in September and October.
Waenhuiskrans (wagon house cliff) is the highlight of a visit to Waenhuiskrans, you will need to navigate the small opening beneath a rocky overhang that takes you into the cave proper.
No visit to Arniston/Waenhuiskrans is complete without a visit to Kassiesbaai. Hidden behind the sand dunes lies one of South Africa’s most picturesque Heritage Sites. The descendants of the founding families have managed to beautifully preserve the essence of this 200-year-old village. The cluster of rustic cottages seems frozen in time, waiting to be captured on film and canvas.
