This little village lies very centrally in the temperate Southern Cape, just 15km east of George. A veritable treasure of unspoiled nature it nestles between the tannin-coloured Kaaimans river and the Goukamma Nature reserve.
Its greatest asset is endless pristine stretches of beach, tranquil, secluded and fanned by soft sea breezes. During the winter months a special treat are the Southern Right Whales that can be spotted using the 18km of protected coastline to come in close to shore and calve.
The Serpentine river meanders through Island lake, Rondevlei and Langvlei making the perfect home for many species of wetland birds. This forms part of the 2500 ha of Wilderness National park, the eco-system here is rare and sensitive and rightly protected.
Many beautiful walks and well marked hikes make this a paradise for nature lovers. Water sports can be enjoyed at Island lake so there is something for everyone.
