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.

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.

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.

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.
