HAWSTON: A Jewel To Be Discovered

Hawston is a fishing village situated between a majestic mountain and an expansive beach in the Overberg district of the Western Cape. Named after Charles Haw, who settled in Calendon in June 1859, but frequented Hawston to spend his vacation here, the village has a closely knit community, proud of the beauty of their town.

The village is rich in traditional history. The first Khoisan settled in Middelvlei, while the indigenous Griqua people maintained their identity in the area.

Hawston welcomes you and invites you to come and experience its beautiful sunset and local cuisine at the Hurib Gaes Restaurant. “Hurib Gaes” is the Namma word for abalone.

So come and discover the beauty and charm this pearl has to offer, namely:

An Olympic size swimming pool
Wild horses
Beach walks
Birds watching the race threatened black oyster catcher amongst others
Whales and dolphins
A community seafood restaurant
