Nestled between the sea and the spectacular fynbos-covered mountains just 2 hours from Cape Town, Hermanus is a small town with a lot to offer.  Summer visitors can enjoy the champagne air, Mediterranean climate, Blue Flag beaches and relaxing seaside town feel.  In winter, Hermanus is transformed by the arrival of the Southern Right Whales, and the town offers some of the best land-based and boat-based whale watching in the world.

Hermanus was recently named a UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy, and you can expect to be treated to culinary delights during your stay here.  Hermanus offers fine dining through to casual pub grub, and many restaurants offer stunning views of sea and mountains.  Spend lazy afternoons gazing at the sea views and spectacular sunsets or treat your taste buds to a delicious homemade country market breakfast.  The Hemel-en-Aarde wine route is home to some of the most awarded wine farms in the South Africa, and a wine tasting experience is always an enjoyable way to spend the day.

For those seeking a little more action and adventure, Hermanus offers plenty of water sports including surfing, diving, kite boarding, kayaking, sailing and even shark cage diving.  Fernkloof Nature Reserve is paradise for hikers and mountain bikers, and for nature lovers and bird watchers seeking to enjoy the unique fynbos biome, the most diverse of the world’s six floral kingdoms.  Hermanus also benefits from a world class 27-hole golf course with unparalleled scenic beauty.
