More info about Sedgefield

Set in the heart of the Garden Route along the southern coast of South Africa, Sedgefield is a prime holiday spot for visitors wanting to unwind and enjoy a chilled seaside holiday. As you enter the village, you pass homes surrounded by a lagoon teeming with birdlife and the occasional tortoise ambling along. The road continues upwards as you climb an old dune to reach splendid vistas of Sedgefield’s estuary and wide flat beach on the Indian Ocean.

Sedgefield is a certified Slow Town, the first African town to receive the accreditation from Cittaslow, an Italian organisation that promotes quality of life over a hectic, money-chasing lifestyle. The town’s emblem is the tortoise and visitors are encouraged to take it easy and appreciate the simple things in life. And stress levels quickly subside after a holiday of walking, canoeing on the river, beachcombing, swimming and sun tanning on the beach

The town’s beach is part of a marine protected area and much of the dune system is fossilised. On the west side of the lagoon, one can walk for several kilometres on the flat, immaculate beach to reach Gericke’s Point, an area favoured by fishermen and with interesting dune formations. The town boasts one of the best farmer’s markets in the country and is ideally situated between the lakes district and the vibrant town of Knysna.
