I took a 90 minute bike tour of the park with WOW-E bikes from Paternoster. It was a fun experience riding bikes that took all the hard work out of cycling and I had two excellent guides who pointed out many features of this deserted and quite barren area. We saw a whale carcass on the rocks too...a bit sad.

Visiting for the first time in over 25 years, it's still most beautiful.
There are bathrooms and bins, but sadly it's also littered.
What was very unusual, was the crayfish poachers coming down over the mountain in their droves, without much thought to hiding what they were doing. If they poaching, how safe are we? Now that I've seen it again, not sure I would ever spend a night here again.

Filthy. Parks board you should hang your heads in shame. This magnificent reserve should be looked after better. Great place. Bad management

**** WARNING **** this place is NOT SAFE!!! We had all our belongings stolen from our car. This camp site is NOT SAFE. Since 2017 I have read that there have been cases of thief here ? Why has nothing been done about it? I spoke to the lady at the police station and she said that targeting tourists , campers , anyone who looks like they have valuables on it. She said that it happens all the time. How scary !!! Do not come here for the sake of your own lively hood! So sad that this beautiful camp spot is such a dangerous place and we will NEVER come back. Tell everyone!!

Really enjoyed a leisurely afternoon drive through the Reserve. Wish we'd had our bikes as imagine it would be even better on two wheels. Spectacular views. Lighthouse was unfortunately closed when we were there but got some great photos!

Amazing sea and sand dunes reserve with so many flowers that my eyes almost turned blind by the colours of the flowers

Beautiful little reserve full of unexpected delights. Take a picnic, binos and good shoes, explore the rock pools, see the extraordinary bird life, take in the fynbos plants and widlife - it's heavenly, so many little hidden bays. Thank you to the people who take care of such an important and special piece of the glorious West Coast.

This hidden gem is a must visit if you want to experience the beautiful bays and beaches on offer at the 6/7 bays dotted around the Cape. With a lovely view of the lighthouse from each of them and even more breathtaking views of the ocean

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.

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
