The Cape Vidal Experience

Turtle laying eggs

Cape Vidal is situated north of the Eastern Shores in the Greater St Lucia Wetland Park and is renowned for its sport fishing and snorkelling. It is a relatively safe area for swimming due to the protection offered by the reef.

This area also boasts access to the Eastern Shores of the Greater St Lucia Wetland Park where there is a wide variety of wildlife as well as spectacular water, forest and grassland birds.

The marine habitat is frequented by Humpback Whales, and in December the rare Loggerhead and Leatherback turtles come onto the beach to lay their eggs.

Cape Vidal is about an hour's drive from Malala and a small entrance fee is payable at the main entrance.
