Grotto Beach

Dutchies restaurant is situated directly opposite Grotto Beach. Grotto beach is one of the most striking South African beaches and has Blue Flag status. With a picturesque view of the ocean, the backdrop of Olifantsberg becomes illuminated as the sun sets. There is no doubt that Dutchies is surrounded by the exquisiteness of nature.

Grotto Beach is perfect for swimming, sunbathing, long walks and beach games. You can in fact walk 18km from Dutchies along the beach to De Kelders.

In whale season you can watch the whales from Grotto beach and see them lobtailing, sky hopping and breaching.

This is a pristine beach that is the pride of Hermanus and we are very lucky to be situated on it. The view from our terrace is spectacular- especially at sunset.
