Experience the Skulpiesbaai Hiking Trails

The hiking trails through the Skulpiesbaai Nature Reserve, only a few metres away from the beach and the ocean, take hikers – or trail-runners – through a ‘forest’ of age old milkwood trees that has been formed in all shapes and sizes over the years. The trail is neat and relatively easy to do – just mind the heads for low hanging branches and be careful of the roots.

You can enter or exit the hiking trail(s) either from:

  • the gravel parking lot at Skulpiesbaai’s fish traps,
  • or a few smaller entrances from the gravel road leading to the parking lot,
  • or from the beach between Morris Point and the Skulpiesbaai parking area,
  • or from the ‘main’ entrance / exit close to the bathrooms on the gravel road between the harbour and Morris Point,
  • or from opposite the Whale Look-out Point above the harbour.

You can not get lost and if you take a different route than planned, you might just end up at one of the other exits. Experience the breathtaking scenery on-route as well over the vast ocean and beautiful beach.

BEACH PLASTIC ‘ART’

Art – from trash…
It is pretty and sad as it is from pieces of plastic found on Stilbaai’s beaches… 😥
We promote Clean Beaches and ask everyone to always do their bit to keep the beaches clean. Don’t litter and pick up what @curb_beachplastic visited Stilbaai and posted some ‘work’ from plastic collected at the beach.

Here are a few of their photos:

 

THE HARBOUR – A COOL PLACE TO BE!

We share this photo for everyone who had a great holiday in Stilbaai and hope you visit again soon!
The Stilbaai harbour has changed over the years – and so has the VW Kombi! – but it is still a popular place to go – to go fishing or to look at the sunrise or sunset or to watch the boats coming in with their catch of the day or to have something to eat at the restaurant…
Follow us on Instagram to see more beautiful photos – this photo was taken by photographer Willem Immelman.

 

NOT TOO OLD TO SURF!

‘You are never too old to have fun’…
This photo of a cool surfer in action early in the new year in Stilbaai, was taken by photographer Bertus Preller.
Want to know where to surf when you’re in Stilbaai? Here are a few suggestions.

SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE

During the December holiday, there is usually something for everyone – if it is a windless morning, the beach is the place to be and when the wind picks up, the kite surfers and wind surfers are in there element.
Karen Meiring captured some of the kite surfing action at the river mouth.
