Wilderness Beach is one of those locations that truly lets one know that they are in Africa. Besides from the African Sun in the Summer time, one can view the dense vegetation that grows right up to the beach, giving a complete wild coast feel to it. It is located between Mossel Bay and Knysna, which in themselves, are worth the trip.
This is one of those beaches that you can be enjoyed during the day and the evening. During the day one can absorb the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, and the expanse of white sand, giving one all the room in the world to relax, or to run around like a wild person. A walk along this beach is a really calming experience, as well as a feast for the eyes. During the evening, one can witness some of the most spectacular sunsets, as well as a variety of sea creatures, such as the brightly coloured sea snails, that form into mass groups, and seem to enjoy their organized chaos.
Many fisherman flock to this shore, as there is apparently great fishing to be had in these parts. A variety of fish are on the menu in Wilderness, due to these fisherman, and their abundant catches.
They are plenty of accommodations to stay at, which are right on the beach, offering those fantastic views, from your very own balcony. I had the pleasure of staying at the Wilderness Beach Lodge, which enabled me to enjoy my time to the fullest. This is a unique beach experience, and one that should not be missed by anyone traveling along the Garden Route.
