Just beautiful
Sep 2021 • Family
We were in this area to see the flowers and this reserve did not disappoint. The combination of flowers and seascape was extraordinary. The only disappointment was that we could not visit the lighthouse due to Covid restrictions. While in the reserve we stopped along the road a few times and also went down to the seashore at a camping site and a place called the Sea Shack. At the latter there was a labyrinth - just lovely to walk and then sit on the bench and watch the little cove. My mother walked in the other direction and had an equally lovely time.

A visit to the lighthouse
Aug 2021
Well, not really, we managed to drive there only to find the lighthouse was closed, as we went over a weekend....
We still enjoyed the drive through the reserve, revelling in the splash of colour provided by the wild flowers in full bloom.
What more could you ask for? An amazing coastline on the one hand and beautiful flowers on the other

Wait for the light house to reopen

Don't bother with this Reserve! The R30 entrance fee gives you access to dirt roads (not well maintained) and a very large campsite.
With the light house still closed (despite being on only Level 1 of lockdown) there really is nothing here to see that you can't enjoy elsewhere for free.

The bumpy drive with all the shakes
Mar 2021 • Solo
I possibly expected more than what I paid for. I did not know it is predominantly a camping site. I was under the impression there are fona and flora with other things to see.

Stunning views and walks

We really enjoyed our time watching the sea, the duykers and oyster catchers and for walking kilometers around rocks and along pristine beaches. We got to watch dolphins/porpoises playing so close and even a sea lion bathing on the rocks.

The lighthouse was closed to the public when we were there. However, we were able to take some magnificent photos of the lighthouse once returning from Tieties Bay. Tieties Bay is a beautiful, secluded beach where you can camp. There was an entrance fee of around R30pp to get into the reserve.

Super walk to Lighthouse.
Jan 2020 • Couples
Walked to the lighthouse on a clear and warm afternoon - certainly got some exercise. Was shut when we arrived so missed climbing up. Was worth it for the views and exercise.

If you are into camping
Feb 2020
A rough, rugged coast line, very hot with no shade at all. A large campsite with campers right on the waters edge. If you are into diving and snorkeling, then this is the place for you, otherwise not too much else to offer. Could be good group getaway from it all. Birding was interesting.

Expected more - you won't be missing much if you skip it
Jan 2020
Came to Cape Columbine Nature Reserve with the expectation that we'd be able to find some trails to explore, but were dissapointed to find none. The beach at the end of the road was pleasant but busy with campers and dogs running around. There were rows and rows of bins which was weird and really detracted from what otherwise was a nice view of the shoreline and out to sea. Didn't feel it was worth the almost R30 entrance fee. You'd be better spending your time relaxing on Paternoster beach.
