History

 

Henties Baai was first discovered in 1488 by Bartolomeu Dias and renamed Praia das Sardinhas meaning Coast of Fish due to the abundance of fish found. Later on in the 1800’s German soldiers discovered the area’s fresh water source.

The name Henties Baai could be attributed to Major Hendrik “Henty” Stefanus van der Merwe who re-discovered the area while looking for a water source.
