Do be warned that about halfway along this main road the path will run out and you will be forced to walk along the grass verge.
 
Continue along the road beyond the turnoff. Within 20 minutes you should start climbing up towards . You’ll need to take a left pretty soon after heading uphill, but this left to the viewpoint should be clearly signposted. After taking this left you’ll follow the road more steeply uphill for another 20 or so minutes until you get to one of a series of stunning viewpoints of , the Heads and . If you’d also like to visit , continue along this read beyond the viewpoints until you come to a right turn with a signpost pointing down to the beach. Be warned that it’s a steep way down, but it’s worth it for the view at the base of the Heads.
 
Return the way you came until you reach again the left turn to . Take this turn and then walk the 4km circumference of the island. This should take you about an hour. If you head clockwise around the island you should be able to follow the Steenbok Reserve trails along the coast before coming to – which is a lovely spot for a swim. Should you get thirsty or hungry at any point while on the island, you can head into the middle to find the well-signposted . To return to , simply head back the way you came!

This is a long walk (with little to no shade), so you might want to split it into two days. You could set one day aside for and and the other day for and .
Don’t expect to pass too many restaurants or shops along this route. Bring supplies with you.
We didn’t see any public transport in the 6 hours we were walking, so be prepared to have to walk there and back. We did, however, see plenty of local workers attempting to hitchhike, should you consider that an option.
