Business name: Voëlklip
CATEGORY:: Activities
Type: Scenic Views
About (Owner’s description): Voëlklip is one of the most beautiful scenic view points in the Garden Route, but also one of the most dangerous. Herolds Bay is situated in a sheltered rocky coastal cove and apart from a small beach in front of the coastal village, the coastline around Herolds Bay is very rugged.

The two headlands of the bay are known as Scott’s Bank and Voëlklip . Ocean currents on the western as well as eastern side of the bay are extremely dangerous

For fisherman, the shoreline around Herolds Bay is an angler’s paradise. Likely catches in summer & autumn would be kob, shad (elf), blacktail, zebra and sharks and in winter & spring galjoen, zebra & blacktail

On the Eastern side of the bay there is path over the rocks leading to Scott’s Bank, Dollieskraal and Dutton’s Cove (4 km; 1,5 hours, great ocean views). To the west, a path leads to Voëlklip (4 km; 1,5 hours; overlooking the sea with magnificent views). It can also be reach by car via the Rooikransies Road turnoff from the R404 (Skimmelkrans Road). From the turn-off to Voëlklip it is 2½km on a dirt road. After about 1 km after the turnoff there is a parking lot to walk to Rooikransies and further west to the Maalgaten River.

This is a beautiful part of the country but must be visited with caution and respect and in the clear light of day and preferably with a local familiar with the area, as number of people have lost their lives here. Fisherman have been swept from the rocks by freak waves and swells whilst a number of vehicles have gone over the cliff
