Love Dutchies at Grotto Beach! We are regulars. Friendly service, good food. Need an update to menu though. Been having the same for three years!

It's a great beach for walking and checking out great sunsets. If you are into shelling there is usually a good variety.Gulf clear as glass.

Beautiful beach with an amazing backdrop of the mountains. Lots of Parking on site with food and drinks available all very safe. The sea was cold at first but do get in and see the fish swimming. We walked for a an hour and were still on the beach so lots of room if you park at the far end.

Most beautiful beaches you can visit. It's a Blue flag beach. Very clean and well maintained. Open to public throughout the year. One of the places you would want to add on your bucket list.

What a wonderful beach to relax on. Nice clean toilets and places to buy food for the family & kids. Just outside Hermanus. Easy parking within a short walking distance to the beach which is great for small kids. You can hire sun loungers and umbrellas for the day from the friendly gentleman.

This beach is situated in the eastern side of the village. It is very well maintained with many parking bays available. The beach has pristine beach sand and offers safe swimming. It is situated below the beachfront houses and has its own access road. It will get congested over peak holiday season.

The mountains are majestic and the beaches just stretches as far as the eye can see..beautiful scenery! The information and art you see on the walkway is incredible and useful. A must to see! The kids enjoyed the whale information the most
