Additional Location Information

Onrus is a small village on the southern Cape Coast. It is just outside (10 minutes drive) of the bigger town of Hermanus. The area is well known for it's wineries, whale-watching, water sports and golf courses. It is an hour's drive from Cape Town (or the Cape Town International Airport), and has an unique ambience with the sea, fynbos-clad mountains and river mouths. The white sandy beaches, numerous restaurants, quaint coffee shops, craft markets and interesting local shops attract many visitors, especially in the whale watching season from June/July to early December. Hermanus is one of the few towns with a local whale-crier that announces the arrival and presence of southern right whales in Walker Bay and an annual whale festival in September.
Onrus itself has a wonderful sandy beach alongside the Onrus river lagoon. It has a lengthy network of coastal paths for those who love walking, has a number of safe tidal pools to swim in, is a popular surf spot for young and old alike, and generally provides for a relaxing and fulfilling holiday at the beach. It is smaller than the bustling Hermanus, but provides all the amenities that you may need. There are numerous restaurants and a handful of grocery stores and coffee shops.
Woelwaters, our property in Atlantic Drive, is located on one of the best, if not the best, spots in Onrus. You are a stone's throw away from the beach, with exquisite views of the beach, mountains, sea, and even the visiting southern right whales! The elegant Milkwood restaurant is about 100 metres down the road, ideal for the days when no one wants to cook, while a beach kiosk where you can eat fish and chips while still in your beach gear, overlooks the lagoon.
