Hello Travellers...

It's that time of year when you may be in need of a little recharge before the big crunch towards the festive season. The Overberg offers spring escapes perfectly suited to this, with well-known beach holidays such as Hermanus, Struisbaai and L'Agulhas. 

And yet there happens to be so much more to this region of South Africa - for instance these 7 Secret beaches. Also be honest - have you ever heard of Baardskeerdersbos, or Baardies, as the locals like to call it? Louzel Lombard shares more about this rather arty and secluded Overberg dorpie here

As you head to the outskirt escapes of the Overberg you may miss out on some unique pit stops along the way, Carina Greeff rounds up some interesting and must-do Overberg detours, check them off here.

The Overberg also has its own rather robust wine region - including these six wine-tasting trips you might not know about.  

And speaking of the downhill to the end-of-year holiday planning, next weekend we'll be bringing you more on the Sunshine Coast - where are you headed this holidays? We'd love to hear from you, so drop us a mail here.

Enjoy!
