Welcome to Herolds Bay
15 km West of George, nestled in a magnificent and sheltered rocky cove where the golden beach sands meet the frothy, turquoise waters of the ocean. Herold's Bay has coastal walks and trails ideal for spotting dolphins and whales. The unspoilt coastal fynbos makes it a popular spot for birders and nature-lovers.
The seaside village is very quiet (no bright city lights) and its wide stretch of sheltered perfect beach make it perfect for relaxing under an umbrella in the summer. On cold days in the winter, one can watch the wild ocean from the comfort of an armchair near a cosy fire! Of all the Garden Route towns, Herold's Bay is the closest to the George airport - only five minutes away. All the attractions of the town of George are only 20 minutes from Herold's Bay.
The little village of Herold’s Bay has short of 100 homes, making it something of a hamlet in much the same way that Llandudno in Cape Town has managed to retain its village appeal. Certainly this isn’t a humming spot. If you’re after bright lights and the clatter of the city, then Herold’s Bay isn’t the holiday for you. But for those after a complete break and the chance to unwind, Herold’s Bay will not disappoint.
Herolds Bay There are a serious number of activities one can do from here. The Oubaai golf course, the first Ernie Els signature golf course in the country - is an 18-hole course built around the natural landscape between the Gwaing River Valley and the Indian Ocean.
The Outeniqua Choo-Choo is one of the few remaining steam trains in the country and travels between George and Mossel Bay, providing one of the most enjoyable and scenic rides in the heart of the Garden Route. The beautiful coastal fynbos in and around Herold’s Bay makes for some wonderful walks and trails, a fantastic area for spotting birds, and when the time is right, dolphins and whales.
