    Default 4x4 fishing spots around the Cape (Veldrif to Arniston)

    I'm buying a double cab bakkie and trying to decide whether it is worth getting a 4x4. I will only be using it to reach fishing spots that would otherwise be inaccessible by car.

    I understand that driving in the dunes are illegal so I just want to make sure how restricted the 4x4 community is...?

    How many trails actually exist between Arniston and Veldrif where you can legally drive right up to the water and fish?

    I know about the following:

    Tietiesbaai near Paternoster.
    I understand Maccassar is closed to vehicles now
    A couple of camp sites around the mountain between kogelbaai and rooiels.
    Are there legal trails on Hermanus Plaat?

    I can make a decent saving by getting a 4x2. Is it worth buying a 4x4 if I'm only allowed to legally drive to camp sites accessible to normal cars?

    Very few spots. From Die Kelders, back towards Hermanus and Die Plaat; from Uilenskraalmond east towards Pearly Beach and Sandy Point, (both CapeNature controlled, permits at the entrance), and Arniston out towards Struispunt/Saxon Reef area. Those are the ones that immediately spring to mind, not much else, it's banned on almost all other beaches.
