Business name: Flat Rock
CATEGORY:: Activities
Type: Fishing
About (Owner’s description): Flat Rock is situated in Wilderness and gets it's name from the flat rock formation located on the beach there. With endless km's of golden beach sands, Wilderness beach is ideal for fishing, sunbathing, swimming, surfing, or a leisurely stroll.

Due to the rocks, Flat Rock Beach is not ideal for swimming, but it is a very popular rock angling spot, and ideal for watching whales and dolphins. Southern Right Whales can be seen from July to November and dolphins can be seen throughout the year.

Fishing can be done on any tide, early mornings and late afternoons are best, as fish are feeding. Bait preferred can range from mussel, chokka, red bait, pink and sand prawn, bloodworm, crab and live bait.

Don't litter & take all excess nylon off the beach.


Via Marine Drive (ample parking available) there are two access points to the beach via wooden stairs. Fairly steep but there are a number of stopping points should you wish to take a breather or take a pic (one between The Views Boutique Hotel & Spa and The Wilderness Beach Hotel & one to the left of The Wilderness Beach Hotel). This area of Wilderness beach is more secluded and is not monitored by life guards. This part of Wilderness beach is also very popular for paragliding. Once down the stairs head left along the beach for about 500m

6th Avenue, gives you access to the furthest point of Wilderness beach & direct access to Flat Rock. This is also accessible via wooden stairs (you need to be fairly fit for this one). Once on the beach head right.
