Sandbaai, Cape Overberg

Sandbaai is one of the newer suburbs in the Greater Hermanus area.

It lies literally in a little sandy bay, hence its name, just past the L'Agulhas lighthouse. The village is only a stone’s throw away from Hermanus and to the east of Onrus, little over an hour’s drive from Cape Town at the entrance to the Hemel-en-Aarde (Heaven and Earth) Valley, the wonderful Hermanus Wine Wander, which places it in a most advantageous position.

The main draw card to staying here is the rustic feel of the village - it still maintains gravel roads and there is a positively eclectic mix of houses that range from holiday homes to more permanent residences in the main for families with young children.

The beach is the other draw card. It comes dotted with rock pools, exciting little coves and popular snorkeling spots. There are also change rooms and showers and safe swimming at low tide.

Just behind Sandbaai, the Hemel-en-Aarde village has a large variety of shops, farm stalls, galleries, studios, jewelers and restaurants, and the wine route is a popular way to spend most of a day, if not more than. But it is Sandbaai’s position sandwiched between the sea and the slopes of the Onrust Mountains, between Onrus River and Hermanus that places it in one of the most beautiful parts of the world.
