Dog Stone

The Dog Stone is a big gneiss rock that so closely resembled a dog; it inspired Thomas Grace to name Hondeklipbaai, which means “Dog Stone Bay”.

In 1853 the “Dog” was defaced when its ear was chopped of and taken to Cape Town in order to start the fictitious “Dog’s Ear Copper Company”. During a severe lightning storm in the 70s, it lost its nose as well.

Hondeklipbaai Lighthouse

Hondeklipbaai Lighthouse beams light flashes and a fog signal warning ships passing Port Nolloth along the West Coast that there is imminent danger. The new white and red tower was constructed in 2006 to replace the old stilt structure that originated in 1936.
