Wilderness Beach

Wide, wild, and unspoilt, Wilderness Beach has pet-friendly sands coloured a rich golden hue which continue on for more than a kilometre in length.

Located along the Garden Route coast of South Africa’s Western Cape province, the beach is backed onto by vegetation-clad dunes topped with homes looking out across the ocean blue.

A short distance from the city of George, it is the Indian Ocean that laps the sands of Wilderness Beach, which means that visitors to this pristine length of shoreline can be all but guaranteed warm waters whatever their intentions.

While lacking the amenities and water sports facilities of more popular beaches, the tranquillity of Wilderness Beach acts as the perfect backdrop to whale and dolphin spotting - creatures that regularly appear on these shores and never fail to bring a smile to the face of those who see them.
