This little town on the Cape's South Coast is surrounded by a rich diversity of vegetation and is particularly well known for its aloe industry with a wide range of aloe products on offer. Situated between the Langeberg Mountains in the north and the warm Indian Ocean in the south, this floral paradise and Cape Floral Region World Heritage Site on South Africa's Garden Route, offers a destination 'away from the maddening crowd' and days of sheer enjoyment.

Whether it's the thrill of adventure that tempts you to try your skills at bungi jumping off the Gourits Bridge, 4x4 trailing, or a visit to a wine cellar at the foot of the Langeberg, you'll find many activities to interest and excite you.

It boasts an export industry of dried flowers including proteas, grasses and the well-known Albertinia Bridal Erica of the region.
