If it’s a complete and total breakaway from the hustle and bustle of modern day life you’re after then the secluded seaside hamlet of Herold’s Bay is the destination for you. Located along the famous Garden Route and just 15km outside of George, Herold’s Bay, which has a similar setting to the elegant seaside village of Llandudno in Cape Town, is not a holiday paradise with bright lights like other holiday resorts in South Africa but it does guarantee to take you away from it all and help rejuvenate your mind and body. The beautiful beach is safe, immaculate, and exciting; with a wide range of water sports to enjoy it remains the bay’s most popular feature amongst both the adults and the kids. Its also perfect for long, languid walks especially around sunset where you can soak up the breathtaking scenery that surrounds you and let the crashing waves soothe you. When the time is right, visitors to Herold’s Bay can enjoy whale and dolphin watching as well as birding, which are both rewarding activities. Additionally, this coastal village is home to the pristine Oubaai Golf Course – Ernie Els’ first signature course in South Africa – so golf addicts don’t have to go too long without enjoying a round of their favourite game, as well as the steam engine train known as the Outeniqua Choo-Choo, which is a wonderful journey from George to Mossel Bay. For those travellers that want a wider array of entertainment facilities, the city of George is close enough and offers a mouthwatering selection of terrific sights and sounds to enjoy. Let the idyllic environment of Herold’s Bay take the pressure off you as you relax and spend good quality time with yourself and the ones you love.
