This is a wonderful destination on the Garden Route with lots to see and do.

No 1 Beachy Head Drive
As one turns into Beachy Head Drive from Beacon Island Crescent, at the top of the hill, turning sharply left, there is a little parking area from which Central beach can be clearly seen

Beachy Head Drive

Beacon Island Rocks

Van Plettenberg Monument
