Hoy's Koppie, Hermanus

3.8
Named after a Scottish man who frequently hiked the hills, Hoy's Koppie features sloping, rocky areas that descend into fynbos that provide good hiking. The namesake was buried with his wife at the highest point of the hills, and the Koppie has several trails leading to the top. From there, you'll see views of the town, the nearby mountains, and the bay. Explore the cave that's estimated to be between 250,000 and 50,000 years old.
