Blue Flag beaches of South Africa
Hawston achieved blue flag status

Grotto Beach now offers a beach wheelchair for the disabled. This is the only wheelchair of its kind along our coastal route stretching from Cape Town to George and can easily be pushed on sand. The project was launched by the Hermanus Access for Citizens committee with financial assistance from the Woman's Agricultural Union and the Overstrand Municipality. The chair can be used by the elderly and people with disabilities who want to spend a day on the beach with friends or want to walk in shallow winter. Proof of identity and an address is all that is needed for use of this chair. Spend a morning or afternoon on Grotto Beach, free of charge.

Grotto Beach in VoŽlklip Hermanus offers long stretches of sand for the most energetic of hiker, uninterrupted views for romantic strolls and has been awarded blue flag status. This annual award has grown from only three beaches in 2001 to 34 this year. Grotto Beach met with all the standards of excellence required by the department under the Coast care programme. Only beaches that achieve world class standards may fly the very prestigious blue flag.
A blue flag beach has to meet standards of excellence of the areas of water quality, environmental education and information, environmental management and safety services, offer top notch life saving standards, effective top-rate ablution and parking facilities and of course access for the disabled.

Onrus Beach

 Onrus Beach is a hotspot for surfers and here you are guaranteed to catch a wave. It has a lagoon area suitable for young tots to splash around in and the restaurant with the best view of Onrus beach, is The Milkwood. It is the only restaurant in Hermanus to serve abalone on a permanent basis and they offer 5 different fish varieties.

VoŽlklip Beach

 VoŽlklip Beach has a long winding path down to the beach area - as well as ablution facilities. Here the whales can be found frolicking in the Atlantic ocean even towards the end of November. Well worth a visit for the sheer beauty of the environment.
