Sardinia Bay

About Hike the Sacramento Trail

The Sacramento Trail is an 8 km moderate, popular one-way or circular route trail between Schoenmakerskop and Sardinia Bay. The trail traverses the Sardinia Bay Nature Reserve where you will see attractive seascapes, landscapes, and depending on the season, some remarkable displays of wild flowers.

Gannets and dolphins can often be seen out at sea. Many wrecked ships, one the Portuguese galleon Sacramento, lie offshore and there is a bronze cannon from the ship on display at Schoenmakerskop. Horses are permitted on the trail.

The trail one-way is 4 km or 1½ hours and the round trip about 3 hours. The trail is an easy to moderate walk with some agility required over the rocks at Sardinia Bay. The full trail leads along the shoreline and returns over the high dunes. However, you can walk as much or as little of the trail as you wish.
