Located in

Engulfed in a deep valley forest bursting with indigenous costal fauna and flora, Silaka Nature Reserve lends much of its magnificence from the drama of its rugged coastline, softened by rolling grassy plains and forest floors littered with the most beautiful lilies, orchids and velvet mosses. Spanning across 400ha’s the protected costal reserve runs from Second Beach to Sugarloaf Rock with the Gxwaleni River forming an estuary on the main beach.
