General information about this area
The Garden Route is sandwiched between the Outeniqua and Tsitsikamma Mountains, just inland of the coast, and the Indian Ocean. It stretches from Mossel Bay in the Western Cape to the Storms River in the extreme western reach of the neighbouring Eastern Cape. (For the purpose of our surf map it runs from the De Hoop Nature Reserve to Oyster Bay. It is a popular tourist stretch of coastline and is very scenic. It's easy to see why it is called the Garden Route. It is entirely accessible by car and many Ten nature reserves embrace the varied ecosystems of the area as well as unique marine reserves, home to great waves of all types, coral reefs, dolphins, sharks, seals and a host of other marine life. Various bays along the Garden Route are nurseries to the endangered Southern Right Whale which come there to calve in the winter and spring (July to December). The towns generally accepted to be part of the Garden Route are Mossel Bay, George, Wilderness, Sedgefield, Knysna, Plettenberg Bay and Stormsriver. Stilbaai and Albertinia have snuck in on the West and Humansdorp and even Port Elizabeth to the east.
