Bredasdorp Shipwreck Museum

The Bredasdorp Museum is primarily a maritime Museum whose primary theme is "Shipwrecks along the dangerous Southern Cape coast and their influence on the development of the Strandveld".

There have been approximately 130 shipwrecks off the Southern Cape coast since 1673. This dangerous section of coast is known as the "Graveyard of the ships".


Bredasdorp Historical Walk
There is a great historical walk of Bredasdorp that you can do starting at the Tourism Bureau (you’ll find that it’s more-or-less in the middle of town). The buildings themselves are historical and the garden worth a walk through, even if it’s tiny by garden standards.

Hike the Whale Trail with Africasunroad
Africansunroad covers the 56 kilometre trail over five days, making it manageable and ensuring that hikers do not miss out on the scenery and tranquillity. The landscapes are breath-taking, with so much diversity that hikers may be tempted to stay here and never return to the ‘real world’. There is an array of natural wonders; from caves, middens (ancient heaps of shells and other materials), and calcified dunes to blowholes and calcrete (or caliche) formations. The unspoiled beaches stretch on for miles, while the mountains are blanketed by the beautiful fynbos for which so many parts of the Western Cape are known.
