The quiet little coastal town of Sedgefield, is surrounded by a magnificent coastal lake system and sandy beaches along the Indian Ocean shoreline. Sedgefield, with its abundant fishing, kayaking, bird-watching, paragliding, surfing and safe swimming areas is the perfect destination for an outdoor, fun-filled family holiday. Besides the natural beauty that surrounds this tranquil village, Sedgefield's Saturday markets showcase the wealth of its talent and organic goods produced by the close-knit farming community.
The Goukamma Nature Reserve close to Sedgefield is a beautiful combination of fresh-water lake and coastal sand dunes that provides more than a couple of walking options such as the Beach Walk of 14 kilometres, the Goukamma to Groenvlei route, the Lake Walk and the Circular route. It helps that during whale season there is a good chance of spotting them here.
