GUIDED COASTAL AND BEACH WALKS


ROBBERG PENINSULA - PLETTENBERG BAY AREA
Weathered by wind & water, this unique peninsula has it all from sandy beaches, massive coastal cliffs, fynbos & fascinating caves bearing evidence of thousands of years of climate change & habitation.

KRANSHOEK - PLETTENBERG BAY AREA
A varied route that offers the shade of indigenous forest and plantations, magnificent gorge views of the Kranshoek River, swimming in a natural ocean pool or Crooks River, rugged pebble beaches & coastal crags. This is a beautiful half day walk with great diversity of habitat & scenery.

SWARTVLEI BEACH & TIDAL POOLS - WILDERNESS/ SEDGEFIELD
The wind sculpted dunes and rugged cliffs form a beautiful back drop for this unspoiled beach and the fascinating tidal pools. As the sea rolls back at low tide, all the treasures hidden in the tidal pools are revealed; baby fish, octopus, starfish, sea snails and crabs are just some of the brightly coloured wonders we can show you.

GROENVLEI TO GOUKAMMA - SEDGEFIELD/ BUFFALO BAY AREA
A varied trail starting at the Goukamma Reserve near Buffalo bay, you'll cross an estuary, walk through an indigenous milkwood forest, take a scenic detour to the beach, and enjoy spectacular views from the top of the Groenvlei dune of the vleis or lakes lying to the North. An interesting & beautiful full day hike.
