Onrus Review

Head back toward Kleinmond, continuing on the R43 toward Hermanus and across the Bot River. The R43 swings eastward around the mountains, past the not particularly attractive fishing village of Hawston, one of the Overstrand communities hardest hit by abalone poaching and drug peddling, and the small artists' colony of Onrus. The Onrus lagoon is a great swimming spot for children. The water is always a couple of degrees warmer than the sea and is safe for the newly waterborne. When you're done with the beach, you can visit the artists in their homes.
