We stayed at the Hermanus Beachfront Lodge which overlooked Voelklip Beach. Was lovely to see the comings and goings from our suite. We also took a walk on the beach and along the pathway. Clean and very pretty. Worth the walk.

Lovely beach, great walk paths along the beach front. Loved the forest feeling when walking along the paths. Pet friendly.

If you enjoy walking on the beach, then Voeklip Beach offers you a seemingly endless stretch of nice level sandy shores to enjoy.

I liked the voelklip beach as there were clean changing rooms and toilets with outside showers to clean the sands off. there are also few restaurants around the beach. There is also parking although they were fixing the road towards parking.

Picturesque beach on cliff path. Safe and beautiful sun stretched beach. Great for families with small children. Walk the cliff path from old harbour to Voelklip. Nice restaurant to enjoy breakfast or lunch. Surrounded by beautiful mountain. Wonderful

Nice little beach with parking near the area (if the actual parking lot is full there is a ton of street parking) The views are nice and there are places to sit on the sand or up on the grass going down to the beach....More
