“Very clean beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

Safe, clean beach and nice to swim in - the waves are nice for body surfing! The Blue Flag status helps to keep it clean. The amenities are also very good.

“A beautiful walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

The easy walk from Abalone lodge along Grotto Beach had amazing views and we saw many whales from there. Dassies (Rock Rabbits) entertained as did the many vynbos birds savouring the delicate flowers and exquisite undergrowth. Spleandid.

Beautiful long beach to enjoy. When we were there the weather was stormy and we loved walking along the beach ,which was practically deserted,watching the crashing waves and looking hopefully for whales.

“Looking onto Grotto beach”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

Good selection of light meals and lunches with a Dutch/ Indonesian twist
A touch above average pricing for the fact that it is a venue literally on the pavement , opposite the main beach in Hermanus, friendly service
