Port St Johns, Wild Coast

About Hike to Eagles Nest

This is the sharp point of cliff rearing itself up from the forest edging the town entrance. The path is well defined and starts at a sign-post a few metres away from the back of the Needles Hotel, opposite the old railway shed.

The walk is steep and it will take you approximately 1 hour to emerge at the top, in a knoll of grass, wild flowers and rocks. Approach the cliff edge to view the Umzimvubu river, the opposite cliff face and the road some 600 feet below; then along the narrow top to the right, to a concrete beacon.

Here you can sit dangling your legs over a safe ledge, and view the whole of the town below at leisure, the mouth of the river, the beach and the streets and homes. This vantage point is a feast for the artist and the cameraman.

Eagles Nest is the only place where the single leaved Streptocarpus grows. Please don’t pick any.
