Spaced out kilometers long fine sandy beach, blue flag accredited. Kite surfers paradise, but beach swimmers nightmare due to rip tides

Stunning beach great for walking. On our visit there were three areas with life savers. At one end the river runs onto the ocean and this area is popular with locals. The restaurant called Salina’s is located here and it is a nice place for a drink or early dinner.

At the other end of the beach there are some nice pools among the rocks.

Dangerous beach to swim unsupervised.

Clean, soft beach. Very relaxing. You can see birds and small shells everywhere.
Paragliders land there every now and then.
Some locals recommended that I do not walk alone there... I did anyway..

Clean empty beach accessible by wooden stair case which descends down to the beach at various places from along the cliff top.

The beach at Wilderness stretches almost 9 km all the way to Kleinkrantz. It is, as it were, cut in two by the Touw river estuary. Here you have to cross a bridge and walk along the highway for a bit. Overall the beach is very well maintained. Garbage is collected and there are quite a few dustbins. Most visitors do not make a mess. The water is clean as well. If there is a lot of wind, it is not pleasant to swim, but to walk along the beach is great at all times. There is a rescue service. I felt secure, even after dark.

It is not always clear where you can access or exit the beach. Directly west of the Touw estuary -after a parking lot with public access- there are only private access and exit points at villa's for almost 2 km. I walked up at several of these, only to end up at somebody's garden or for a closed door.

Views for miles on this awesome beach. Visit Flat Rock which is a natural wonder. Great walks and swimming beaches galore.

We stayed at Xanadu Villas b&b which has direct access onto the beautiful beach. We walked in both directions, the beach is clean, not at all crowded, and very beautiful

Great beach to pop onto, the water access is not as good as Victoria Bay and is rather exposed if it’s windy. There is good access control and an ice cream vendor
