Directions For Drivers
From Cape Town: Take the N2, direction Somerset West. Stay on the N2, pass Somerset West.
EITHER Go up Sir Lowry’s Pass, pass the turn offs to Elgin & Grabouw, and continue up the Houw Hoek Pass. On the top you will see a sign which says 'Welcome to the Overberg'. As you descend the other side you will get to a very sharp hairpin bend corner and immediately after that you will begin to see the signs for the turn off to Hermanus - R43. You feed off to the left and cross the N2 on a flyover.
ALTERNATELY: Turn off the N2 at the bottom of Sir Lowry’s Pass (on the Cape Town side of the mountain, before you begin the climb) towards Gordon’s Bay, and follow the scenic R44 around the coast past Rooiels, Pringle Bay, Betty’s Bay (stop at Stoney Point and see the penguins!) and Kleinmond. This road ends at a T-Junction with the R43. Turn right towards Hermanus. This route takes about 20 minutes longer but is really beautiful.
24 km later you arrive in the centre of Hermanus. At the first roundabout, turn first left. At the 2nd roundabout turn 2nd left. At the 3rd roundabout turn 1st left. 3.5 km further you will reach a very big roundabout. Go straight over towards Stanford, and drive for another 2 km. Turn right in 13th Ave, and drive until you reach a stop sign about 150m in the direction of the sea. Turn left into 10th Street and Mosselberg on Grotto is about 100m further on your right (sea side).
