Elim, a charming historical town in the Cape Agulhas area, lies on a dirt road between Gansbaai and Bredasdorp close to two oceans. Founded in 1824 as a Moravian mission station, it is one of only a few surviving mission stations in South Africa. Known for its whitewashed thatched cottages, Elim is also home to the biggest wooden water wheel in the country. Dating back to 1833, the watermill was declared a national monument in 1974, was restored in 1990 and can still be used for grinding wheat today.
