Arrive at Anchors Rest to a warm welcome, the smell of the ocean, the distant sound of the waves and the invigorating champagne air.

Situated in the quaint seaside village of Hermanus, 120Km from Cape Town, we are a mere 150m from the famous cliff paths boasting the best land based whale watching in the world! Anchors Rest is a 1.8km stroll to the village centre, which you can do along the spectacular cliff paths, whilst viewing whales in season.
