 Additional Information

Swartvlei beach is a good summer spot but gets very good under the right conditions. There are a few peaks around, its a long beach that goes from the point (Gerickes point) all the way down to the rivermouth and there are many peaks along here. The most popular is the main area where the life gaurds are in summer. Enjoyed best on lower tides with a smaller 3-6 foot swell.

Atmosphere

Beautiful scenery. Gerickes point also has a good lefthand point wave setup and there are a few other spots along the pretty long walk to get to it. There is a funny big rocky hill at the point that looks like a lion on its side.
