Located just minutes from Hermanus, Onrus is a hidden gem of natural beauty and easy living. Like most parts of the Western Cape, Onrus is the perfect balance of excitement and tranquillity, offering visitors plenty to enjoy while still allowing them to slow down and take it easy. It’s a fine line, but Onrus walks it well!
Considered by most to be a year-round holiday destination, this little town kicks it up a notch between June and January thanks to the large influx of visitors excited to view the whales that frequent the stunning coastline during these months. Remember to keep an ear out for the official whale crier and his kelp horn as he alerts residents and visitors of whales in the bay - it’s a stunning sight to see up to 100 of these majestic creatures playfully make their way along the coast.
Thanks to the pristine shores of the various beaches and the beautiful walking, hiking, cycling and horse riding trails, outdoor enthusiasts will have plenty of opportunities to get their nature fix while enjoying the beautiful countryside that defines Onrus. Alternatively, the Hermanus Zipline Tour company provides the perfect adrenaline rush. If you (like us) need a glass of wine to settle your nerves after zipping around, the numerous Walker Bay Wine Estates are perfect for relaxing and enjoying world-class wines as well as spectacular views.
Whether indulging in retail therapy at the Whale Coast Mall, exploring local markets, hitting the waves or simply taking it easy as you discover local gems, Onrus is the ideal holiday destination to reconnect with nature and yourself.
