The beach at Sandbaai is lovely. Dramatic waves and awesome seas. This is a great place to stay at Hermanus.

Lovely little beach. Go for walks often with the kids. Bear in mind there are no restaurants or little cafes with things for sale. Go at own risk.

Wow, OMG, beautiful.

Located on the edge of the world! Next stop Antarctica. Flat Earthers travel no further.

Beautiful beach, golden sand, lovely bay, a river coming in to it. Plenty to see and so. One could probably watch the whales from here.

Little food concessions always busy.

Houses dotted around with lovely views.

I am. It sure the sand is firm enough to make a sandcastle.

Well worth a visit.

This beach is more for taking the little ones to the beach so that they can play around in the small pools between the rocks. Swimming can be difficult because of underfoot rocks and steep sand bank. Can be dangerous with high tide.

My wife and I visited after staying at the Sandbaai Country guesthouse, beautiful scenery. We collected sea shells on the beach together and enjoyed the being there.

We went to this beach to watch the sunset and we're glad we did. Highly recommend for couples. It's a small little intimate beach but also has trails for walking.

Sandbaai is just far enough from the relative bustle of Hermanus to make a weekend trip from Cape Town worthwhile. It's a very small collection of holiday houses, a rocky beach (with the odd sandy bit), and plenty of locals walking dogs. If you can stock up on food and wine from a nearby mall, you're good to go. Bring some shoes and walk around the village and to the beach - no point in driving. Many of the accommodation options are owner-managed guest-houses and b&bs.

If you're a restaurant and bar person, you'll likely have to drive into Hermanus for your fix. if you do, there are a couple of wonderful Saturday morning markets to visit there.

Our accomodation during our stay was right on the Kusweg, so we had the joy to wake up everyday with the gentle waves and the occasional whale passing by. This is not a beach for swimming, but you can have a stroll over the walkway which is paved with drawings from locals.
