The coastal resort of Vleesbaai ('flesh bay') is a popular holiday place for fishermen.
The name comes from visits made to this bay by early Portuguese and Dutch sailors who traded with Hottentot tribes for meat and cattle.
The beach is a haunt for collectors of shells. There are many heaps of shells left by prehistoric people, who obviously found the fishing as good in their distant times as it is today.
