Walked the portion from the Pinnacle gold course back to the lighthouse and Mossel Bay. Beautiful views, lots of birdlife, both out at sea and in the fynbos.

I'm not sure if we just 'got lucky' or if this is regular, but out of the blue whilst walking the cliff face we peered down to see thousands of white splashes....and then hooping fins flash out of the ocean. An amazing sight to see!...More

Lovely views and the sound of the waves crashing against the rocks is nice. The path is steep in places and proper walking shoes are recommended.

Response from Mossel Bay T |
The trail starts at the St Blaize cave (underneath the lighthouse). You can turn back whenever you want, or go all the way to either Pinnacle Point Golf Club, or Dana Bay.
