The Old Harbour Museum in Hermanus is one of only two harbours in the world that has been preserved for historical posterity. Constructed from stone and concrete it dates from 1855 and grew to serve the local fishing community. Visitors today can still see the original gutting tables that were used to lay out the day’s catch and the brine tanks where the fish were held. A crane built in 1915 replaced many of the labour intensive tasks and several old boats surround the harbour. The harbour was last in commercial use in 1958. The whole harbour was declared an open air museum in 1972.
Surrounding the harbour there are several fisherman shacks that now house artefacts relating to the harbour and its associated fishing industry . There are also displays about whales, for which the area is famous and the story of how Hermanus has created a tourist industry out of the whales is told. A gift shop is also located within one of the old buildings.
The Grotto Beach in Hermanus stretches for kilometres, all the way to KIeinrivier lagoon and De Plaat, a popular fishing spot, and is ideal for long walks along the shore.
Grotto Beach offers fine golden sand and has received a Blue Flag in 2002.
The beach offers parking facilities, is serviced by a restaurant and shops, toilets are available and it is allowed to bring pets.
Further amenities include a playground for little visitors and there are several barbecue (braai) facilities and picnic spots.
Please note that the beach is only supervised by a life guard during the main season and that swimmers need to be cautious of the strong currents and high tides.
Grotto Beach is not suitable for surfing.
