Very nice and varied trail; we passed sand beaches, volcanic rock, forest, and fynbos. Hiking the volcanic rock is not safe with high tide, but right before the rocky part there’s a restaurant and little shop where they can tell you whether or not it’s safe. If it’s gonna be high tide there’s another trail that goes past the volcanic rock part.

Great trail and wonderful views back towards Camps Bay and of the wreck. Bit of a climb up to Rocket Road but worth the effort. Little overgrown along the path back towards Sandy Bay beach. Take your dog and enjoy the peace.

Very beautiful trail, bit definitely not moderate more like difficult

Toller Trail, der an gleich zwei wunderschönen Wasserfällen entlangführt (Otter Trail und Bkue Duiker Trail). Der Otter Trail ist zwischendurch ein Stein- und Geröllfeld, welches sich aber gut läuft, notfalls in langsameren Tempo. Der zweite Teil im Wald ist sehr schattig und angenehm, im Regenwald gibt es viel zu sehen, Highlight ist der versteckte, aber umso schönere Wasserfall!

beautiful trail. we chose to run it but had to stop sometimes as it's very rocky in areas. also be prepared to climb up some sand hills but the views are worth it

Easy walk.. Be prepared for ticks and mozzies. Beautiful views. About 200m on blue flag beach (its a bit confusing because it is a pet friendly hike. Other then that.. The whole family really enjoyed it

La première partie de la balade est facile mais très fréquenté. À ne pas manquer le point de vue après le pont suspendu. Ce segment est beaucoup plus sportif !

Splendidly beautiful trail with incredible views. Must do if staying around

Trail is at Zebula golf course (not Knysna). Very nice walk although not marked very well. Steep uphill and downhill patches.

Great morning or evening hike. Takes a bit longer than expected due to some rocky scrambles, but pretty easy overall. Plenty of seals to be seen during the summer, and maybe some bottlenose dolphins if you're lucky.

It is a very pleasant beach walk. Strong head wind and wrong time of the day (14:00) made it not that pleasant. We stopped after 700m and went back. I would recommend it for a very early morning or late afternoon/evening walk (with less wind thou )

Incredible views. Trail is a bit challenging in sections. Views are worth it. We did not do the entire loop but did the trail head to wit sand, cut through to the island and the return. The return is by far the most challenging portion.

Fantastic. Quite hard over the rocks and boulders. Remember to take water.

Dias beach is a bodyboarder paradise if you have the right equipment and wave knowledge. Warning for rip and strong current. Highly recommend

Very easy walk! Great for walk with young kids!

Very easy trail with nice view. All bridged

Beautiful hike up to Cape Point Lighthouse from the Cape of Good Hope with a side trip to Dassie Beach. Very windy this day but I imagine most days are. A bit rocky but the biggest challenge is the wind. Dassie Beach is beautiful and the water isn’t as cold as I would think but again the wind blowing the sand against your body not so fun. All said the views along this trail are outstanding and well worth dealing with the wind.

Nice hike through the forest leading to the Otter trail with views of the coastline. We headed west upon reaching the Otter trail but turned back in the middle of the boulder crossing before reaching the falls.
