About Langbaai Beach

Only minutes away from many of the guesthouses in Hermanus, the quiet Langbaai Beach lies in wait for visitors that need a tranquil escape. This is known as the secret beach of the area, and is more of a secluded cove, albeit a long one. Here, visitors can enjoy the sunshine, soft sea sand, and salty spray of the ocean without sharing the space with hordes of tourists or locals.

The beach is nestled between two rocky outcrops, which ensure relative protection from the wind. The water is chilly, but safe for swimming, surfing, paddling, and stand-up paddling. There is plenty of sandy space for little ones to run around and build sand castles or for the parents to read a book and catch some rays. The rocky area is always fun to climb and explore. This beach is also a stunning spot for a romantic picnic at sunset.

Langbaai Beach is about 10 minutes from the centre of Hermanus. But, it is very close to some of the other well-known and popular beaches of Hermanus. It is less than 50 metres from Grotto Beach and only slightly further (59 metres) from Kammabaai Beach. Voelklip Beach is just over 200 metres from Langbaai.

Langbaai has limited parking and can be accessed via the cliff path and a number of steps. These factors combine to create a space that can be a little tricky for the elderly or for families that have loads of gear to carry. But, this also means that the well-maintained beach remains quiet throughout the year, which may be just about perfect for those willing to tackle the steps.

Hermanus and Langbaai Beach are less than two hours from the city centre of Cape Town.
