The Shark of Struisbaai

Struisbaai is partly a holiday village for the super rich South Africans who inhabit their houses for three weeks at the most every year during the festive season. You pass it on your way to the Southernmost Point of the African Continent in Cape Agulhas. Not much to see in Struisbaai except the harbour (with its stingrays) and some ugly architecture (but that is personal!). But there are some good restaurants that off value for money, especially when compared to prices in Cape Town. So there is something positive to say about Struisbaai.

And there is more; hardly any sand beach and that is fine for the collectors of shells and seaweeds. There is plenty of it. Look what we found:
