Renowned as a premier whale-watching destination, Hermanus grew from a quaint fishing village nestled on Walker Bay.
You've added Kleinmond Beach, Rossouw Modern, The Book Cottage, and other attractions to your itinerary. Get in touch with nature at Grotto Beach and Dolphin & Whale Watching. You'll get in some beach time at Voelklip Beach and Pringle Bay Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Hermanus: Stony Point Penguin Colony (in Betty's Bay), Shark Diving (in Gansbaai) and Franschhoek (Dieu Donne Vineyards & Views, The Huguenot Memorial Monument, & more). Spend the 25th (Tue) exploring nature at Bontebok National Park. And it doesn't end there: stroll through Panthera Africa - Big Cat Sanctuary, take an in-depth tour of Drostdy Museum, admire the natural beauty at Van Loveren Family Cellar, and experience rural life at Klein River Cheese.
