“Average experience”
Reviewed 16 September 2013

If it was'nt for the beach and the sea, this experience is nothing more average. Lot to do with the attitude of the humans employed there, not great.

“GROTTO BEACH, HERMANUS”
Reviewed 3 August 2013

A Blue Flag beach and the best swimming beach near the town. Lifeguards on duty at peak periods. Also restaurant virtually on the sand!! For swimming, you could also try Voelklip beach which is nearer town but lacks the extensive parking at Grotto.
