  Mission Rock
by MikeAtSea

Mission Rocks is 16km north of St Lucia on the Cape Vidal road and is a wonderful rocky shore with picnic sites behind the dunes. The Mziki Trail is part of a trail system planned to link St Lucia Estuary with Cape Vidal. It is about 40 kilometres in length, takes three days to cover, and is laid out in one of the most remarkable areas of South Africa.
Experiences on this trail are both varied and unique. The walk along the northern Zululand sea-shore, the open grasslands of the Eastern Shores, the dense forests clothing the spectacular coastal dunes,combined with scintillating views of the Indian Ocean and the magic of the Greater St Lucia Wetland Park, add up to an experience which will remain in visitors memories forever. Mission Rocks is popular for shore fishing at high tide and the rock pools at low tide are rich in marine life and very colourful. Nearby at Mount Tabor there are three circular day trails which provide hikers with an opportunity to experience the wildlife and magnificent scenery of Lake St Lucia. On the way to the beach there is a lookout point with views of the Indian Ocean and southern Lake St Lucia.

Directions: North of St. Lucia in Northern KwaZulu Natal
