This little village was once the main harbour from which the copper ore of Namaqualand was exported after being transported by ox wagon along the Messelpad Pass. It is now a peaceful settlement of 750 souls. For the 4×4 enthusiast it offers a vast, unspoilt coastline to explore. The Dog Stone near the police station, from which the village derives its name, keeps watch over the graves of long forgotten sailors.
