This popular fishing town, nestled in the Western Cape, hooks in visitors with its charm and wondrous bait.
It sits at just a short two-hour drive from Cape Town - making it the ideal weekend city break.
In fact, you can be sure to experience the sheer adrenaline-fuelled madness by partaking in a bout of shark cage diving with one of the local companies - like, Marine Dynamics mentioned in the video.
The chances are some of your favourite TV and film shark stars were filmed in this very location - due to the density of their population here.
The town falls under the Dyer Island Conservation Trust ecosystem which houses and protects a plethora of sea babies - from thousands of seabirds like the African penguins to migrating Antarctic whales, dolphins and a whopping estimate of roughly 60 000 seals!
You can learn more about the precious African penguins over at the African Penguin and Seabird Sanctuary in Gansbaai.
A must-see site includes the HMS Birkenhead Memorial site. You can also explore the rugged sea landscape and caves of the area and get insta-worthy shots of rocky cliffs that hang over shallow sea pools - a view that is simply breathtaking.
