Garden Route DestinationsHerolds Bay, Garden Route

The beautiful, secluded bay called Heroldís Bay has held an allure for holiday makers since time of old. Sketches and photographs in the George museum tell of ox wagons filled with tents, goods and servants, camping out on the beach itself.

Today the bay is no less of an attraction and surfing, fishing and swimming, sheltered from the south easterlies that can blow on the coast, make this a favourite destination. Only 15 kilometres from George, the bay literally nestles in a sheltered rocky cove with a wide stretch of beach and inviting waters.

The little village of Heroldís Bay has short of 100 homes, making it something of a hamlet in much the same way that Llandudno in Cape Town has managed to retain its village appeal. Certainly this isnít a humming spot. If youíre after bright lights and the clatter of the city, then Heroldís Bay isnít the holiday for you. But for those after a complete break and the chance to unwind, Heroldís Bay will not disappoint.

There are a serious number of activities one can do from here. The Oubaai golf course, the first Ernie Els signature golf course in the country - is an 18-hole course built around the natural landscape between the Gwaing River Valley and the Indian Ocean.

The Outeniqua Choo-Choo is one of the few remaining steam trains in the country and used to travel between George and Mossel Bay, providing one of the most scenic rides in the heart of the Garden Route. Sadly it is no longer operational.

The beautiful coastal fynbos in and around Heroldís Bay makes for some wonderful walks and trails, a fantastic area for spotting birds, and when the time is right, dolphins and whales.
