This part of the Western Cape’s coastline is rugged and raw, with excellent fishing, shark cage diving, as well as stunning opportunities for SCUBA divers and snorkelers that want to see the colourful abundance of fauna and flora under the ocean’s surface. The beaches are inviting, perhaps even irresistible, for their long sandy stretches and good swimming. Some of the beaches nearby to Franskraal are Stanford’s Bay, Kleinbaai, and Die Plaat; as well as Franskraal’s own beach, which is acclaimed for its extensive sandy stretches and wonderful bird watching. There are a number of hiking and walking trails around Franskraal, as well as excellent 4 x 4 trails.
