The tranquil fishing village with two names, Arniston is on the north-east of Cape Agulhas in Marcus Bay and known as one of the world's best hideaways. It was officially named Waenhuiskrans (wagon house cave) by early settlers after a nearby cavern large enough to house their wagons. This cave is easy to explore for sea treasures at low tide.
The village became unofficially known as "Arniston" after the nearby tragedy that sunk a British troopship of the same name. The village offers some wonderful opportunities to explore unusual rock formations and other examples of natural erosion.

Remnants of prehistoric fish traps are visible along the coast and serve as memorials of a vanished people called strandlopers ("beach walkers").
