Due to dune erosion it has been necessary for Ramsgate Conservancy to close the boardwalk between Ski-Boat Bay and the Whaledeck.

The boardwalk has become unsafe but cannot be removed or re-sited until Municipality Documentation is received which at present is stuck in the “red-tape” department.

It is hazardous to by-pass the temporary fencing installed and/or to sit on the beach below it.

Please feel free to use the new wheelchair friendly pathway that starts by the new Eco-Tourism Centre (a Joint Venture between Ramsgate Tourism and Ramsgate Conservancy) next to the BP Garage, drop in and say Hi to the staff that are setting it up, and continue up to the Whale Deck Viewing Area and then come back down by the “Old” path.


Vote of Thanks


Ramsgate Conservancy would like to thank all the Sponsors / Donors to the Eco Tourism Centre project for their generous donations, without these it could not have been done.

We ask all readers to positively support the businesses who have assisted with donations, and to our Private Donors we thank you from the bottom of our hearts

  1. if council has been approached about the boardwalk, & they are dragging there heels ( as normal ),and conservancy are going to pay for the repair,as I assume no money will come from council , it should be repaired , the longer you wait the more it is going to cost you I never had a reply to my comments on the R 70,000 that went missing , interesting to see if I get a feed back

    • Unfortunately it can’t be repaired but has to be removed. It is part of a “Public thoroughfare” and can’t be removed without the required documentation.
      It is unacceptable that the dune rehabilitation that was required was not done by the Municipality to stop this happening in the first place.
