Fauna and flora enthusiasts should take time out to enjoy a hike or walk in the nearby Blaauwberg Nature Reserve. Held over weekends throughout the year, this is an opportunity to learn about our rare and endangered wild flowers.
The circular Coastal Dune Hiking Trail is 4.4 km and starts and finishes from Eerstesteen, just north of Bloubergstrand. GPS 33°46’38.98″S , 18°26’55.04″E
Visitors meet at the Environmental Cabin at Eerstesteen and are led by volunteer guides who are members of CREW (Custodians of Rare and Endangered Wildflowers). Or, you are welcome to walk the trail independently, it is signposted. No dogs allowed, no cycling and for safety reasons do not walk alone.
Spring Walks are held on Sunday 20th August, 17th September and 22nd October and start at 2pm.
The Botanical Walk is a slow walk, and suited for those who like to amble along. Just short of the halfway point, there is an opportunity for the more energetic walkers to walk ahead or for slower walkers to turn around. The botanical walks are held on the first Saturday of each month between 9am and 12pm. No walks between November and February.
Take along your water, snacks, hat and sunblock.
