Using Hermanus as a base

You may prefer to enjoy the option of hiking the vineyards and olive groves of the Hemel & Aarde Valley during the day, and also enjoying the night life of the many open-air restaurants and coffee shops  with the possibility of seeing our annual visitors the Southern Right Whale. We can arrange accommodation in one of the many hotels or B and B’s. Hermanus also has an abundance of other marine life to enjoy, Brydes, Minkie and Humpback  Whales, Bottelnose and common Dolphins, pods of over 500 have been seen feeding from the Cliff Path.
