I can hear the waves at night and it's also my go to place to sit on the numerous little benches on the Cliff path to watch the whales in season, or just to stare at the sea....

The power of the sea was immense and the sound deep and rumbling. We had a few days of high wind as well so it was built up. The whole trail is such an asset.

Kwaaiwater is wonderful for sunset drinks on the rocks. Take a bottle (or two) of something ice cold and watch the sun go down Simply gorgeous to see

Kwaaiwater is a spectacular viewing spot - at high tide it lives up to it's name, which translated, means "Angry water" , as the waves splash meters into the air. During winter, when the Southern Right whales frequent Walker Bay, they can be seen very...More
