A popular whale watching site during the winter
months, Kleinmond beach is a natural, unspoilt
beach set at the mouth of the Kleinmond Lagoon near Hermanus in the Western Cape. This beach is popular with South African holidaymakers and worth a visit by overseas tourists.
Conditions at the beach can be windy during the summer months. Lifeguards are on duty during the months of December through to March each year. The beach is sandy and wide and offers beachgoers excellent walking opportunities. Or to simply sit on the rocks and enjoy the scenery.
The beach can be reached by driving on the N2 out of Cape Town, over the Hottentots Holland mountains (Sir Lowry's Pass) and then taking the turn-off to Hermanus. The sign post to Kleinmond is well marked on the road to Hermanus.
