“Raw nature”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2013

Loved it here, the wind was fairly strong with waves crashing over the rocks, we had the whole place to ourselves, very beautiful. Some good bird sightings made it a worthwhile trip.

“Beautiful spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2013

Spent ages here watching the waves crashing on shore. This is a favourite spot for surfers and we sat in the sun watching some very skillful ones. We walked out to the lighthouse and penguin sanctuary. It was closed for refurbishment but we were still able to see penguins through windows. They look after injured penguins and release them back into the wild when they have recovered. This is a nice place to go on a warm sunny day. Relax and enjoy a picnic.

“Don't miss this spot!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2013

Worth coming here, for the beautiful lighthouse, the pristine, intact nature and vegetation, the cute penguins at the nursery next to the lighthouse. Not a must see and a bit off the beaten track, but therefore not overrun by tourists and not crowded at all. But nevertheless, definitely worth doing the detour.

“Peaceful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2013

We decided to make the drive from Jeffrey's Bay to here to check out the lighthouse and the waterfront. Unfortunately it was a gloomier day but we still enjoyed seeing the water and the lighthouse. We took a quick peek at the penguins but we didn't stay long since it was quite chilly as well. Not a must see spot, but if you are in the area, why not make the stop.

“Time for sundowner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2012

The spot around the lighthouse makes a beautiful setting for a sundowner. Look for shells between the rocks or walk along the beach.
