Such a surprise! Beautiful upkept walk-way throughout the nature reserve. Clean grounds all over. Friendly park assistent checking vitals and takeing necessary Covid19 precautions and safety officers on duty. Birds in abundance and scenery beautiful but toilet not operational and needs repair. Well worth the walk through & the last stretch on the beach towards Promanade was a plesant undertaking. Will definately do this again on my next visit.

I really enjoyed visiting here. It’s not an all day outing, unless you take a picnic for the beach. I saw duikers, vervet monkeys and a variety of birds. I wish I had gone on one of the guided walks from the Breakers Hotel, but they don’t happen on weekends, and at 9, 11 and 2 (not 3pm as per info on the web). Follow the left hand signpost for the best walk!

This is a really great place for a short walk. You can start on the boardwalk or from the hotel side and will walk over bridges, through forest and end up on the beach.

The exciting and informative nature hike in Lagoon Nature Reserve led by Breakers Resort guide. He explained the names and significance of trees and herbs. Views were breath taking. We had to cross the lagoon on a shaky bridge, it had no railings and it was a long walk across, we followed the guide across, it was exhilarating.....not for the faint hearted. The scenery, the long walk through the reserve was really awesome!

A beautiful nature reserve with a short trail through coastal forest, across a lagoon, and along the beach. Beautiful indigenous trees and plants and many forest and water birds. it seems that blue duiker are occasionally seen. I would also expect monkeys but did not see any. A pleasant, peaceful walk full of interest. It is commendable that this piece of nature is preserved and made accessible. Entrance is free.

We came across this walk by chance.
I love nature and this was a walk through coastal forest and across wetlands and through mangroves and hibiscus.
Well maintained paths and boardwalks.
I will repeat this experience whenever I have a chance.

We went there because of a small entry in some brochure from our hotel and did not expect a lot. But that was very nice and paid off very much, beside the fact that it was for free.
Board walk ways across the lagoon at one point, monkeys in the trees and stunning views onto the sea from high in the wooded dunes - fantastic.
Indigenous forests and plants, just very nice, few people and a nice look and feel of coastal rain forests.
We finally had a snack break on the beach.
Take the walk clockwise direction!

What a walk! - pleasant clean need - slippers friendly. Different plants and trees which you would not see in a "dry" environment.

This is an incredible beach and one of the only where beach goers are able to take mans best friend for a walk. But be warned, this lagoon area is also home to an unofficial nudist beach spot. The Nudists are located behind the sand dunes, or so they should be to keep the spot still child friendly. Please be aware if you are taking children this far that you might see some nudity. I am fond of the beach, not for the nudists only, but for the great vistas and the occasional Fish eagle that frequents the spot.
