- Western Cape
Just a few kilometres before the L’Auglhas Lighthouse the town literally lies in a little sandy bay, hence its name, a little over an hour from Cape Town. Sandbaai has a wonderfully rustic feel with a gorgeous and quiet beach, most likely the little villages biggest drawcard. The beach offers rock pools and safe swimming at low tide.
Sandbaai is just a stones’ throw from Hermanus and all its attractions, a huge tourist spot along the coast and another reason for visiting is that the town lies at the entrance to the incredibly beautiful Hemel-en-Aarde (Heaven and Earth) Valley and the wonderful Hermanus Wine Wander! Just behind the town the Hemel-en-Aarde village hosts many worthy attractions and facilities from farm stall, art galleries and shops to gift shops, coffee shops, restaurants.
Sandbaai offers a few holiday cottages and the surrounding villages and towns promise affordable and luxury holiday accommodation farm caravan parks to Hotels.
