Nestled between the Outeniqua Mountains and the endless golden beaches, lies the seaside village of Wilderness. It is a nature lover's paradise of beaches, lakes, a placid lagoon and indigenous forests. The area provides some of the best trails in the region for bird-watchers and hikers alike. To the delight of many local and international investors, despite being world renowned, Wilderness has retained its “seaside village” charm and character, unlike its neighbouring resort towns. The lack of available land for potential development in this area, has ensured that the Wilderness has become the much sought-after jewel of the Garden Route. A wide range of properties is offered for sale from apartments to residential homes and spectacular beachfront properties. For those looking for ‘country life’, Wilderness also offers rural estates in Wilderness Heights and nearby Hoekwil. Prices vary between R800 000 for an undeveloped residential stand and R20 million for a beachfront retreat.
