This is my fishing area it has now become a robbery /hijacs etc.mecca. You cannot visit this area if you are not armed and without a group of your buddys. Some of my friends has been attact in this area. Nothing gets done.

Cape Recife offers so much. The best way to explore the reserve is on the Roseate Tern trail which we did. It gives you the opportunity to see everything there is to see in the reserve. Bird watching, coastline, the lighthouse and the WWII observation post. We often just go for a walk on the beach or a visit to SAMREC. It great that more and more people are going back into the reserve to utilise it.

If want a nice photo, this will the place to be with the lighthouse. Very quiet and nice, but thats it.

This was a gem of a find for us. We stayed right outside so took morning walks through the reserve every day. The flora is so diverse, the beaches long and pristene except next to the parking areas. The lighthouse area is beautiful as can be. One warning, take mosquito spray if visiting the bird hide, we got eaten alive. An area PE can be very proud of.
