You can see Grotto beach all the while whilst walking along the cliff paths around Hermanus and it's beautiful. Easy parking and places to eat. Well worth a visit.

Fantastic beach for long walks at low tide. Beautiful view of the mountains behind Hermanus. With a piece of luck, one can even meet baby seals up on the sand.
