Trip Planner: Africa / South Africa / Western Cape / Overberg District / Overstrand / Hermanus / Voelklip Beach
Favored by surfers and bodyboarders, Voelklip Beach offers scenic views, a few secluded rocky coves, and opportunities for whale watching. The narrow strip of sand gets even smaller during high tide, but gently sloped green lawns make up for the lack of space. Amenities are basic and include changing rooms, showers, and public restrooms. Note that the beach fills up easily during the peak season--you might have to leave your car by the road, since parking is limited. Our Hermanus trip itinerary tool makes visiting Voelklip Beach and other Hermanus attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
