Hartenbos

Hartenbos was established in 1730 when a ship and her crew were stranded along the shore. A local farmer alerted the authorities of the ship’s misfortune and as compensation, the Dutch East India Company granted him a farm, which he called Hart en Bosch (deer and bush). Later, in 1933, the South African Railways and Harbours turned this tract of land into a resort town. This family holiday spot is now known for its iconic jetty, golden beaches and memorable camping spots.
