Spot the birds
Take a hike through the coastal forest of the Ivungu River Conservancy. Birdlife is plentiful and if you’re lucky you may even spot one of its resident duikers. The walk starts behind the South Coast Striders clubhouse on Club Road. It becomes very dense in places and there are a few low overhangs on the path. Closed shoes are advised. No entrance fee is required.
Stroll through the market
Considered to be the largest market on the South Coast, The Rotary Craft and Flea Market takes place every Saturday morning from 9 am opposite the Douglas Mitchell Sports Ground. The Rotary Club of Hibiscus Coast runs the project and keeps an eye on its vendors to ensure no two stalls are the same. Tel 039 316 6546
Walk to the Falls
Follow the moss covered stairs that lead up the dense coastal forest behind Uvongo Beach. The short stroll up to the waterfall isn’t clearly marked, but there are various viewpoints along the way that look down on to the lagoon. Jumping into the lagoon isn’t advised.
