West Bank Route: This is an easy trail which will take 2 to 5 hours. It is excellent for bird watching, as well as giving you the opportunity to see some of the local flora and fauna.
Pauline Bohnen Route: This easy to average route of 2 to 4 hours gives you panoramic views of the ocean with the added possibility of spotting a couple of whales. It takes you through dune fynbos and there is always the possibility of spotting the odd antelope.
Lappiesbaai Beach Route: This is an easy route to tackle at low tide. It takes you along unspoiled sandy beaches with unique rock formations. Also suitable to watch for whales during the whale season
