Danger Point Lighthouse

One of several lighthouses along the treacherous Overstrand coastline, the Danger Point Lighthouse near Gansbaai was built in 1895.  If you take a day trip from here through the Overberg, passing through places like L’ Agulhas, Arniston and De Hoop, you will unwittingly be passing the wrecks of more than 100 vessels that sank along this rocky stretch of coast.  Visitors can stay in the self-catering cottage appropriately named Gale Force.
