Situated less than a 2-hours’ drive from Cape Town, Hermanus is the perfect getaway whether you’re a local Capetonian interested in a mini-break or an international traveller interested in exploring the Cape Overberg region. Visitors to this coastal gem can spend lazy days leisurely exploring top tourist attractions and discovering local hideouts. Not merely for those looking to take it easy, Hermanus has a reputation as a paradise for outdoor adventure enthusiasts.
The famous Hermanus Cliff Path is always a must-see, allowing guests to visit the Old Harbour and the Blue Flag Grotto Beach. Cliff Path is also one of the best places for whale watching, so be sure to keep an ear out for the official whale crier who walks the streets sounding his kelp horn to alert residents and visitors of whales in the bay. The Salmonsdam Waterfall Trail offers an easy - but beautiful - hiking trail that ends at a waterfall where hikers are welcome to jump in and cool off. From cycle tours to horseriding, plenty of beaches and local fishing spots, you’ll have plenty to feed your outdoor soul.
