About Ferry Point, Long Beach and Agate Terrace Hike

The ferry service runs from dawn to dusk at a nominal charge (the path next to the Library will take you to the ferry). It takes you across to the other side of the river, where you can take a walk along the beach (Long Beach) or the road.

Agate Terrace is halfway between the river mouth and where the beach ends abruptly in a very steep bluff. The path from here leads to the top and along the hills to another splendid beach and excellent rock fishing can be had. This is Poenskop, which means, in Afrikaans, a hornless cow’s head. Along these Wild Coast hills one finds Native life as primitive as is possible to see, and the view of the ocean is breathtaking.

The distance from Port St John’s is about 10 kms and should not be attempted by those who are not strong and energetic. It is advisable to take food and water on this walk.
