Situated just 140 kilometres from Cape Town and located between the beautiful shores and cliffs of Walker Bay, Hermanus has grown from a small seaside resort town to become known for its whale watching between about June and November. This is possible from the walkway that hugs the coast, by boat or even from the air.

This town is also famed for its natural scenic beauty, long stretches of pristine beaches and a variety of restaurants, cafes and bars.

Hermanus offers visitors all kinds of activities, both energetic and relaxing. Visitors can explore the Old Harbour Museum, which is comprised of the charming fisherman’s village, the old harbour, and the Whale House Museum; hike through the nearby Fernkloof Nature Reserve, and sample an array of top quality wine along the famed Hermanus Wine Route.(ITT)
