SEDGEFIELD ON SEA

If it’s outdoors, it’s out there! Sedgefield on Sea is an unhurried seaside village on the N2  national highway halfway between George and Knysna and ideally located to access George airport and all Garden Route destinations.

The village nestles between the lakes, mountains and vast stretches of unspoilt, undeveloped beaches of the Wilderness National Park and the Goukamma Nature Reserve. Far from the seasonal crowds, its peace and beauty make it the perfect getaway for families, and a well located refuge for tourists. It has all the amenities with a friendly village feel, a selection of restaurants and the  renowned Wild Oats  Saturday farmers’  market and Scarab Craft Market.

Sedgefield lies at the centre of the Garden Route lakes district at the estuary of the major Swartvlei Lake, a mecca for fishermen and water sport enthusiasts. Surrounding indigenous woodland  offers magnificent walking, hiking, and mountain biking. The bird list is impressive, and hang gliders float like butterflies from the hill tops. A short course provides for the golfers and abseiling, scuba diving, and surfing can be enjoyed close by. Nearby Buffalo Bay is the safest beach in the southern Cape, and smaller children can enjoy the tranquil waters of the Sedgefield lagoon, while parents relax close by on the beach. It is a paradise for all.
