Able seaman Just Nuisance was the great Dane who befriended and guarded the members of the navy during WW2. its a nice statue to this character. Go pat him on the head and maybe leave a few coins for him.

Love the town. Oozing character! Views of bay, yachts, the famous Just Nuisance statue. The square is vibrant with colour and character. The architecture is wonderful. Try and see how many different gables you can see. One of the best historic towns iin South Africa....More

It's a statue of a dog, no obvious information surrounding it. Nice enough statute but some history/back story would be nice.

Nice learning about Nuisance and well worth a visit. The grave side is a bit dangerous to visit maybe something you need to look at
