Sedgefield is situated in the banks of the Swartvlei Lagoon. The lagoon offers safe swimming, fishing and canoeing. Bird-watchers will not be disappointed, particularly at Kingfisher Creek, a reed-lined channel connecting the sea to the lagoon.

Hikers can take a stroll along Sedgefield beach, west, to Gericke's Point. For campers and caravanners there are several sites available in Sedgefield, but it is advisable to book early, because the park is almost always full during peak season, December to January.

Sedgefield has a horse-riding center that caters for all riders, even beginners. The riders can select which trail they want to follow, and can select from the lake, the mountains, the beach, or the forest.

Close to Sedgefield, towards the east, you will find the Goukamma Nature Reserve. The reserve houses the Garden Route's only freshwater lake, the Groen Vlei. The vlei is a very popular boating and fishing area. For hikers several trails are available in the area. The three most popular trails are the 14 km Goukamma-Groenvlei trail, the 4km Lake Trail, and the 8km Goukamma Nature Reserve Circuit.

The sandy beaches along the 13km seafront are beautiful but swimmers have to exercise caution due to the strong currents and unpredictable backwash.
