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.
