“Beautiful beach walk, fun with kids!”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

A beautiful beach walk fun for kids, all ages as not too far. Go at low tide or spring low and there are amazing rock pools to explore. One of the few places on the Garden Route that you still find some shells although the variety is nothing like it used to be! A popular sea fishing spot too! Lovely to take a picnic and spend a few hours.

“Awesome beac!h!!!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is one of the most beautiful beaches on the Garden Route. At the end of the beach there are numerous rock pools which will provide endless hours of entertainment at low tide. In July/Aug it is not uncommon to find whales frolicking in the bay. This beach is rarely crowded and offers a nice long walk in two directions.

“Way cool”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

Way cool!!!! Just watch the tide. It is a must at low tide with beach and rock pools and beauty and wind-blasted sand dunes with overhangs that are breath-taking. Look out for the sea creatures and the abundance of bird-life.
Ablution facilities at Swartvlei Beach before you start walking to Gerickes.

“Beach walks”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

Beautiful beach walk, especially at low tide. Have also enjoyed a great moonlight beach walk which is organised for full moon and low tide evenings, torches to check out the rock pools, fascinating.

“OK but not really special”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

Nice to have a look there but the sfinx in better observed from the dunes at Myoli beach lodge. If you walk towards the river via the beach you have a great view of Gerrickes point and can look in the entrance of the river as well.
