Cape Vidal falls within the St Lucia Marine Reserve and is situated north-east of St Lucia.This pretty bay is supported by a variety of accommodation set back in the dunes.There are 18 five-bedded and 11 eight-bedded fully equipped log cabins. These have two and three bedrooms, a bathroom with shower, a fully equipped kitchenette and a dinette/lounge. For fishing parties, five multi-bed cabins (sleeping 8 - 20) may be hired on the shore of Lake Bhangazi.
Cape Vidal also has 50 campsites in the dune forest near the beach.

Bhangazi Bush Lodge, 10 km from the hutted camp, sleeps eight guests in four self-contained, fully equipped units.

Cape Vidal bay has a designated launch site for skiboats and deep-sea fishing and spear fishing are popular sports. It is sheltered and superb for snorkelling at a low tide. Cape Vidal is near the site of the Dorothea shipwreck, a wooded barque which was lost in heavy weather on 31 January 1898. She was said to be carrying gold from the Transvaal. The whereabouts of the Dorothea is unknown however snorkellers may come across a chain in the bay which is said to have come from the wreck.

Cape Vidal has the best of both worlds with access to the eastern shores of Lake St Lucia where there is a variety of game including reedbuck, other antelope, hippos, crocodiles and buffalo, spectacular water, forest and grassland birds and the wonderful Indian Ocean shore line with its startling array of marine animals.

The marine habitat is the route used by humpback whales on their northerly migration to Mozambique to calve. Other "big game" include migratory marlin, sailfish and dolphins. In December the loggerheads and leatherback turtles come onto the beach to lay eggs. Schools based at St Lucia can make arrangements through the Crocodile Centre to visit Cape Vidal for the day or small groups can stay at Cape Vidal.

There are private business in St Lucia which cater for school group guidance.
Malaria precautions are advised.
