Cape Vidal is a sheltered bay located just north-east of St Lucia. The dense coastal forest on the dunes of this KwaZulu-Natal nature reserve in iSimangaliso Wetland Park is home to many birds and small mammals.

Cape Vidal is protected from the pounding of the sea by a reef and the pristine beaches of this KwaZulu-Natal nature reserve attract many sea turtles to nest on the shores in the summer. In winter you can spot Humpback Whales migrating along the coast.
