This is a great short trail that descends down to the water and back up to the top of the cliff with stunning views out over the Indian Ocean. When I was there, I was excited to see whales on their migration south.

Trails are free and bring so many benefits to our community by providing opportunities to have fun, get fit, socialise, explore and challenge yourself. But they also have to be managed and maintained which only is made possible through terrific sponsors, donations and/or volunteering.
