Hermanus's Voelklip Beach will always hold a special place in my heart; almost every summer as a kid, it would be where I looked forward to going to for about a month, only a ten-minute walk away from my grandparents' house. The beach is on the sheer face of a very small cliff, which has a grassy top that is absolutely perfect for suntanning and for keeping your things; towels, bags, etc. Leading off of the cliff is a small wooded area that leads onto Grotto beach about a ten minute walk away, which makes for a great afternoon walk. Voelklip Beach can get really dangerous, with 2m waves during high tide, but makes for an absolutely delightful swim during low tide on a hot summer's day. It's easily my favourite swimming beach in the Hermanus area.
