Herolds Bay lies 15 km West of George and has always held an allure for holiday makers with its beautiful and secluded bay, making this a favourite destination for those looking for a complete break and a chance to unwind.

The small village of around 100 houses is situated on a ridge overlooking the bay with lots of lovely trees.

Dolphins and whales can be spotted while hiking along one of the coastal walks amidst the fynbos and chatter of birdlife making it also a popular spot for birders and nature-lovers

The wide stretch of sheltered beach makes it an ideal spot for surfing and fishing and there is a popular seawater swimming pool. Musselcrackers are prolific in the bay. 

Herold’s Bay was named after the first minister of the Dutch Reformed Church, Tobias Herold, from the town of George, close by.
