Things To Do

Wilderness

Wilderness Beach

One of the most breathtakingly beautiful coastlines in South Africa, Wilderness is home to a swathe of unspoilt, golden sand. The 18km beach boasts a blue flag, life guards (in season), fresh water showers, ablutions and parking. Peaceful and uncrowded in the winter months, Wilderness beach is a mecca for surfers. In summer, it is a sun worshippers heaven, as dozens of colourful paragliders hang in the vast expanse of blue sky overhead. The Touw River Estuary offers calm bathing. Sands Road, Wilderness, 6560
Wilderness

Kleinkrantz Beach

Situated on a dune just east of Wilderness village, Kleinkrantz is a small community, flanked by the Indian Ocean, Wilderness Lakes and the Outeniqua Mountains. Hibiscus Street, Kleinkrantz, Wilderness 6560
George

George Dam

The tranquil banks and forested hills surrounding the Garden Route Dam are ideal for trail activities such as cycling, running and hiking. The dam and surrounds, which is the main source of drinking water for the residents of George, is maintained by George Municipality and MTO Forestry. The Saasveld Route System, a network of MTB trails, starts and finishes on the dam wall. Most routes consist of jeep tracks, plantation roads and some single tracks. Watch out for cheeky troops of baboons! Stander Street, Loerie Park, George, 6529
George

Victoria Bay Beach

This narrow cove between steep tree covered hills forms a natural amphitheatre. The caravan and camping parks on the hillside overlook a narrow stretch of golden sand and a scenic rocky headland. Vic Bay is well known among surfers as the best right-hand point break in the Southern Cape. The beach resort is also a magnet for sun seekers and swimmers and becomes crowded on sunny days. Safe bathing is available between the palm trees on the beach or in the placid tidal pool beneath the pier. George Road, Victoria Bay, George, 6529
Wilderness

Wilderness Lagoon

The Touw River Lagoon is a picturesque wetland, with warm shallow water perfect for swimming, rowing, fishing and birding. The northern edge of the estuary is flanked by a wooden boardwalk, which winds through reed beds and under Milkwood Trees. Visitors can take a guided cruise on the placid waters with Wilderness River Safaris or rent a kayak or stand-up-paddleboard from the Garden Route National Park (Ebb and Flow Rest Camp).
