 Additional Information

In light northerly winds, this spot fires on all cylinders. The peaks here can be epic with the sand in the right place. The Goukamma River, with its deep rich red mineral colour from the forests and mountains of the southern Cape, trickles into the sea here. The ocean responds with superlative form.
