Situated on the Atlantic coast, c. 150 km north of Cape Town, this small island lies in Lambert's Bay harbour extremely close to shore. A concrete causeway that forms the fishing harbour has linked the island to the mainland since 1959. Rising to only 7.6 m above sea level, the island is rocky and virtually devoid of vegetation.
