Business name: Swartvlei Beach
CATEGORY:: Activities
Type: Beaches
About (Owner’s description): Swartvlei (or Black Lake) on western side of Sedgefield, forms a safe estuary for bathing and provides easy access to Gericke’s Point – one of Sedgefield’s most popular beach walks. Care however needs to taken as rip tides, which can quickly sweep one out to sea, are in prevalent in the area.

The Swartvlei estuary provides good fishing for the angling enthusiast and the beautiful rock formations near Gericke’s point is a popular spot for snorkling and spear fishing. The mouth of the Sedgefield Lagoon - about three kilometres to the east - is visible from the Swartvlei Beach parking area. The lagoon can be crossed at low tide to reach Sedgefield village.

A board walk leads down to the sandy Swartvlei Beach, which makes for a great beach walk and activities such as kite surfing, wind surfing and sun bathing. The beach is popular with surfers and is a favoured destination for horse riding along the shore.

Humpback whales and Bottlenose dolphins as well as Southern Right whales can be spotted from the beach on their sojourn between June and October. Because Swartvlei Beach is a breeding ground for the endemic (and endangered) African Black Oystercatcher, no dogs are allowed in this protected area.

Swartvlei Beach is close to the Swartvlei Caravan Park and in addition to the car park, has ablution facilities on site.
