IN A NUT­SHELL

South African Country Life - - Hiking -

Up to it? This is a straight­for­ward beach walk, eas­ily ac­com­plished by any mod­er­ately healthy hiker. If you’re pushed for time you can com­plete it in five nights/six days by miss­ing out a stay at Serendip­ity, but this in­volves one long day of 22km be­tween Mazeppa and Wave­crest, so I’d thor­oughly rec­om­mend spend­ing six nights on the trail. There’s also a three-night Mini Me­an­der start­ing at Wave­crest.

When to go The trail can be walked year-round, ex­cept dur­ing the Christ­mas and Easter hol­i­day sea­sons when the ho­tels are fully booked. This sec­tion of the coast has a mild, hu­mid cli­mate, with most rain dur­ing the sum­mer months.

Win­ters are cool and pleas­ant for hik­ing.
