Lovely little spot away from the crowds who descend on Hermanus, perfect for the little ones to simply to enjoy some sand and ocean play. Ideal location should your little ones wish to try there hand at body boarding.

This is quite a small beach, with rocky areas behind, left and right. To the rear, toilets and changing areas. Could be very busy, I imagine, as he beach is small at high tide.

After a busy day of any kind, this is a great place to lay back and enjoy the beach. This beach is one of the best beaches in the world. Not over populated, easy living for sure.

Lovely beach and simply great for kids and adults alike to simply frolic around and enjoy nature at its best. I would however recommend a proper wetsuit for the kids to aid with the cold water conditions.
