Mermaid Guest House Struisbaai
Come rest a while in our beautiful seaside village. Boasting the longest continuous beach in Southern Africa, the 14km of white sand extends from Struisbaai to Arniston, providing safe bathing, boating and angling. The beach here is exquisite, with an almost subtropical feel. The water is crystal clear and its brilliant color is exaggerated by the colorful fishing boats at anchor in the harbour.
Mermaid Guest House is close to all amenities in Struisbaai including the main beach, which makes it a convenient base for your visit to Struisbaai, Cape Agulhas and the Southern most tip of Africa. Come and have a relaxing stay in our peaceful surroundings to restore your soul.

The charming little harbour in Struisbaai, originally built in 1959 but enlarged in 1990, serves local fishing boats known as “chukkies” as well as ski boats for the flocks of visitors to the town during the holiday season. On almost all days it’s easy to launch a kayak, small boat, or rubber dingy off the beach, and board and kite surfing / sailing are particularly good here.
The Struisbaai harbour is almost always full of activity, whether it be the colorful fishing boats, the anglers trying their luck on the pier, or the children frolicking in the waves at the beach. But there is one thing certain to enthrall any visitor, and that is the sighting of the harbour’s resident stingrays.
The rays can generally be seen around the slipway when the fishermen return with their daily catch. The largest ray is ‘Parrie” a long time resident of Struisbaai. Parrie has his own fanclub, ‘Friends of Parrie’ on Facebook!
