Luxury Hermanus Vacations
Nestled on South Africa’s dramatic, craggy coastline, Hermanus is a charming town where you can indulge in local wines and sumptuous cuisine whilst watching whales and their calves frolic in the bay.
Just a two-hour drive from Cape Town along the scenic Walker Bay, Hermanus is a bustling fishing town, brimming with restaurants, bars, hotels, and shops. Whether you choose to stay here overnight or just visit on a day trip from Cape Town, you can expect glorious views across the bay, cliff walks, hikes, wine tasting, and atmospheric restaurants and bars.
The area was once an exclusive retreat for Cape Town residents, but today it attracts visitors from far and wide for one unique attraction: whale watching. From June to November, you can witness one of the planet’s most incredible natural performances, as migrating southern right whales arrive in Hermanus en masse.
Aside from whale watching, there are a great many adrenaline-fuelled activities to experience in Hermanus, including shark cage diving with great whites and mountain biking. Those seeking a slightly calmer pace can find a table at a shoreline restaurant, sip exceptional wines and enjoy freshly grilled seafood, sushi, and contemporary fusion cuisine whilst looking out over the soothing bay.
