Activities:

Flanked by beautiful white beaches, watched over by magnificent mountains of the Overberg area, Hermanus in South Africa hugs the seafront of Walker Bay on the Atlantic Ocean. Home to no less than three Blue Flag Beaches being Grotto, Hawston and Kleinmond, guests can enjoy endless stretches of spectacular beaches and breathtaking scenery of the nearby nature reserve, while enjoying our 4 star luxury accommodation.

Visitors to Hermanus are spoilt for choice when it comes to fine restaurants and culinary delights with fresh seafood, sushi and fine local wines readily available, on top of the selection already available at our guest house. Another major attraction to Hermanus is the fact that it is home to an amazing collection of art galleries and many well-known South African artists are located throughout Hermanus. Even though Hermanus has grown rapidly during the past decade offering up market shops, fine restaurants and luxury Hermanus accommodation options, the town has retained its traditional village charm from a bygone era.

The city is internationally known as the home of the Southern Right Whale, which can easily be observed from June to December. The peak viewing times for these amazing giants of the sea is August - November. The whales begin to migrate from Antarctica in late April, taking up to approximately 8 weeks to arrive in Walker Bay, Hermanus.
