It takes only a short(20/30 min) walk to get to the bridges through a nice peace of nature with a whole lot of information and beautiful views on the coastline.

You park in a Picnic/Barbeque area with cabins, food and incredible Wave Action. There are parallel rock ridge formations at an angle to the waves. They crash and spray violently. When the weather permits - boat tours are offered. Thrilling boat rides. There are hundreds of cute animals around that look like large round fluffy rats. We were told they... More

I've took a mountainbike to the viewing point. Sadly we didn't see any dolphins from here, but we definitely saw a lot of whales. This was also really amazing to see. Then we took a walk down to the suspension bridge. From here we saw a whale and his baby from really closeby. This naturearea is definitely a place to... More

We really enjoyed this short hike to the suspension bridge on our trip down the Garden Route. All it all it took about two hours to do the hike and it was worth it. The view from the bridge is beautiful and exhilarating. The loop trail was a nice hike - up and down with lots of different types of... More

The walk is up and down but I was 6 months pregnant and managed it with out a problem, just a bit short of breath. A 6 year old had no problem and a 4 year old completed the hike with one or two bribes and holding daddy's hand on the bridge. The view is spectacular and the bridge is... More

Honeymoon end destination. We had so much fun burning off a week of "wine and dine" calories hiking to the bridge. Getting there is 90% downhill climb. The bridge (3 parts) takes you down to a valley where it is essential that you sit/stand and listen to the tide washing over the smooth pebble beaches. It is ultra cool (kids),... More

I loved the suspension bridge, and the padlocks people put on the bridge. The walk is a little long but so worth it at the end cos you met with this great view and amazing spot. if you can hike up a little further once you cross the long bridge. you will get an amazing view.

Have visited Storms River NP,and several other SANParks on our tour of SA.We have found ,without exception that they are very well run and organised ,much better than the NP s in the UK. From the information Boards and catering ,right on to the WCs the SANPs are a credit to this great nation.

We wanted to visit the bridge having seen lots of lovely photos. Given the quite expensive entry fee to the National Park, we were quite disappointed. The walk down was nice enough - quite steep but all on boardwalks. We thought we'd be able to walk up the hill on the other side of the bridge, but it runs out... More

A relatively short and easy walk up the Storms River to the bridge. Cross the bridge over the stormy river below. A good start to the Otter Trail.
