Regarding sunbathing beaches in South Africa, it is worth mentioning that in the Western Cape province are some of the world’s most beautiful beaches, however, the water temperature in this area is rarely above 17 degrees (the Atlantic). To achieve a warmer Ocean temperature, it is recommended to travel north along the coast and the Indian Ocean.

Along the west coast, approximately two hours from Cape Town, is the charming small fishing village, Paternoster situated. The village, with its whitewashed houses and the characteristic blue and red painted boats along the sandy beaches, has grown and become an increasingly popular destination in South Africa. Stroll along the long white beaches and have lunch at one of the charming fish- or gourmet restaurants. Visit galleries and buy your crayfish directly from the local fishermen in the village.



Franschhoek is situated in one of the world’s most beautiful wine valleys. For more than 300 years ago the French Huguenots settled in Franschhoek region and brought their winemaking and food knowledge wich today has resulted in South Africa’s gastronomic capital. It was only when the French Huguenots arrived in South Africa, that the wine culture took off and with their knowledge they laid the foundation for today’s South African wine industry. In the picturesque town you will find some of the absolute best located vineyards in South Africa.



Hermanus is situated in the unique and attractive area of Walker Bay which is surrounded by ocean, mountains, and miles of white beaches.

You can travel to South Africa all year round, but we recommend going September to May

Healthcare is good in South Africa. Even so we suggest obtaining a sound travel insurance before departure

To ponder before travelling:

The so-called “peak season” in December / January is very popular indeed and requires booking of accommodation, safaris, activities and restaurants well in advance.
