The Geelkrans section of the Stilbaai MPA is a Restricted Zone, no fishing or removal of living marine organisms allowed.
Cars are not allowed past the parking area. Please do not disturb nesting birds and keep to specified paths to avoid trampling sensitive vegetation. Please also note that the beach may only be accessed on a low or falling tide.
