ImageThis peaceful little coastal village is situated just outside Hermanus, a perfect escape from this busy town, but a mere five minute drive away. Onrus is called home by many famous artists and authors who revel in the tranquil lifestyle this village has to offer. Nestled between the mountain and the ocean and with the Onrus River flowing into the lagoon at Onrus Beach, this sleepy hollow is exceptionally beautiful with an abundance of wildlife and bird species calling it home. It also beckons the Southern Right whales who visit the ocean meters from shore. The arrival of the whales also brings forth the annual Kalfie Fees in August. A festival celebrating art, music, good food and wine.


From the “centre of town” it is a five minute walk to the beach. Once here you have a choice of swimming, surfing, tanning, playing beach sports or canoeing down the lagoon. You will also find the Milkwood  Restaurant at the beach with undoubtedly the best view in town.
