ATLANTIC SUNSETS: 17 km
Hout Bay to Green Point/Kloof Nek
Chaperone not necessary.
The road leading out of Hout Bay towards Llandudno has a good walking path and this remains true for most of the way although this road can get busy during traffic times.
The sea is wild & exciting and crashing waves and smooth boulders line your path on the left and the 12 apostles loom out of the sea on your right. This Leg leads you into the dense and elite suburbs of Bakoven and Camps Bay.
Our suggestion is to stop for your stamp and refreshment at The Bay Hotel on Camps Bay strip.
About 2 km before hitting busy Bakoven, walk up the stairs on your right and towards the mountain until you meet a neatly built and nestled away Karamat. The care-taker, Mannie, is friendly and knowledgeable and will show you around this 350+-year-old sacred space which holds the resting place for a political activist, Sheikh Noorul Mobeen, in the 1700s. Be sure to cover your shoulders and knees to show respect for the holy space.
Explore the world-class beaches of Clifton and then the Sea Point promenade and into Green Point.
THE GLEN NATURE RESERVE
The Glen forest and nature reserve is an optional walking route up from Camps Bay to Kloof Nek. The busy beachfront sounds subside as you follow the footpath under canopies of enormous, old trees. Enjoy the smell of the forest, the echoes of the birds and the burn of your thighs before you pop out onto Kloof Nek and make your way down to the city.
