“PE tops”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

Along walk, but worth it. No litter, just nature. The lighthouse standing strong and well kept. You can see the whole Algoa Bay in all its glory.

“Stunning in Springtime”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

This part of the coastline of South Africa isso beautiful and just a short drive from the centre of P.E. The rock formations are amazing in shape and colour. In springtime the clifftop walk if vibrant with the colours of the wild flowers. Full of photographic opportunities.

“Stunning experience”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

The views are extraordinary, the beaches are pristine, and it's just a mere 15 minutes away from the centre of a bustling city. Unbelievable. The sea is aquamarine and the soul feels transported.

“A wonderful natural area close to the city”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

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.
