Two-Harbours1The Two Harbours Walk is one of many projects undertaken by the St Francis Kromme Enviro-Trust. It allows the residents and holidaymakers access to the outstandingly attractive section of shoreline along St Francis Bay.

The municipality granted the Trust permission to create this trail on Public Open Space in 2000 providing that the Trust undertakes the maintenance of the walk.

The full potential of this amazing walk as a tourist attraction however will only be realized once the Trust is able to raise the capital needed for a major upgrade.

Two-Harbours2Where is the Two Harbours Walk?

The walk starts at the HERITAGE ECO CENTRE (the old NSRI boathouse) and ends at the Port Parking area. Hence the name TWO HARBOURS WALK.

What to look out for

The views are spectacular as one looks over the bay towards the mountains in the distance.
The rocky coastline is magnificent and home to the Cape Clawless Otter.

Numerous birds can be spotted, including the African Black Oystercatcher, Cape Gannet, Kelp Gull and Cormorants.

Look out for Humpback, Common and Bottlenose dolphins in the bay.

Two-Harbours3The most common whales to visit the bay are Humpback and Southern Right during the months of June/July and Oct/ Nov.

If you do the walk on a Wednesday afternoon or on a Saturday morning pop into the Heritage Eco Centre and study the freshly picked flowering indigenous plants to help you identify the local flora you will see on the trail.

Heritage Centre opening times: Wednesday 14h30 – 16h30 and Saturday 10.00 – 12.00

One needs to be agile as there are some sections where one has to walk over rocks and up and down steep steps.

If you are not wishing to walk the full length of the trail then there are a number of places where you can join the path.

Ask a friend to drop you off at the car Park in ESMARELDA ROAD and leave your car at your destination. (BLUE MAP parking lot between Erf 1298 and 1214)
