Investing in our Municipality

Overview

Why invest in our Municipality?

Our municipality comprises the following towns:

Bredasdorp
Bredasdorp can be reached by turning at the crossing of the N2 and the R316 route from Caledon to Arniston and on the R319 route from Swellendam to Struisbaai / L’Agulhas. Although it has a typical rural atmosphere, it has an average business core with all the important services, such as a hospital, clinic, police station, magistrate, bank services and retirement facilities.

Napier
Napier is situated between Caledon and Bredasdorp on the R316 route. The town consists of a number of small businesses with agriculture as the dominant economic activity in the areas.

Waenhuiskrans / Arniston
Waenhuiskrans/Arniston is the only town in South Africa with two acknowledged names. This fisherman’s town is situated approximately 24km from Bredasdorp on the R316 route. It is also host to the World Heritage site of Kassiesbaai, a quaint subsistence fishing community.

Struisbaai
Struisbaai is known for its 14km white sand beach. This is the longest uninterrupted white sand beach in Southern Africa. This beach town is a popular holiday town that attracts visitors throughout the year and is also home to a thriving fishing industry.

L’Agulhas
L’Agulhas is the most southern town in Africa. The legendary point of Africa is surrounded by both the warm Indian and the cold Atlantic Oceans that meet at the most southern point.

Suiderstrand
This beach town is situated approximately 5km from L’Agulhas. Suiderstrand is also a holiday town and was established as a result of a need for holiday houses with a rustic rural character.

Elim
Elim is a historical Moravian missionary station with monumental status. The town is communal property, belonging to the Moravian Church.

Klipdale and Protem
Both these rural towns owe their establishment and development to the railroad and the grain silo’s that were built there.
