Cape Vidal Beach
South Africa

In the heart of the iSimangaliso Wetland Park one finds the beautiful Cape Vidal Beach.

The warm Indian Ocean meets an endless stretch of sand. Accommodation is available in the form of log cabins and camp sites set amidst the coastal dunes.

Guests and day visitors often see whales and dolphin and turtles. Land-based game, such as monkeys, antelope and various bird species are also common.
