    Default Helgas Heights - Lutzville(West Coast)

    Hi Everyone

    I've been to the west coast quite a few times but never south of Brand se Baai.

    Is there a shorter route to get to Helgas Height and Gert du Tiot se Baai(Gert se Gat) from the Cape Town side?

    If there is, is it open for the public?

    Your wisdom regarding this would be much appreciated.

    Hi Jean
    Just after Koekenaap there is a turnoff to the coast via Skaapvlei. Follow this to the coast - open and close a few gates thereafter while you follow the coast towards the north - and you will be at Gert du Toit se Baai within 30 minutes.
    I have heard rumours recently that some of these gates are locked nowadays so hopefully someone who has been there recently can confirm - we were last there in September last year and none of them were locked then.
    Regards

    I was there in December and no gates were locked. There is quite a bit of activity before the coast, Eskom building a wind farm on the Skaapsvlei road so lots of construction traffic
