“Pristine beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

A clean, Blue Flag beach with outstretched white sand and wonderful views of blue ocean. Dog friendly as long as dogs are on a leash and cleaned behind them. Play park for children on the beach near the parking lot. Days of fun in the sun for the whole family.

“We saw a seal!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

Great fun for kids. We did see a seal swimming, that is how cold the water was. The bathrooms were really clean. Take umbrellas, blankets, food, whatever you need. There are no places to sell or rent things; great cafe near by though. Overall beautiful place to go, take a walk and touch the water, if you dare.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

White sand, clean facilities and a spectacular view of the surrounding mountains. The water is a little chilly for Natalians

“Best for jogging”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

15kms of absolute pleasure if you like an early morning walk or jog! Every morning the local municipality are out in force and remove the rubbish or what the ride brings in! Spotless!
Fantastic restaurant on Grotto beach even if you just want coffee.
