    11Km walk through Nature. The ocean on one side, the Mountains on the other and fynbos around yourself.

    Lovely beach, one can hire umbrellas and sun loungers. There is a great beach bar and their restaurant right next to it. Clean, holiday vibes and very cold water.

    If you are looking for some unbelievable landscape plus want to get to know the local flora and fauna of the area , this is the place to go and walk ! There are several walking route available ranging from 90 mins to all day and all are very well marked, Due to time pressures we could only do the 90 min route this tine , however we will be returning to take on one of the all day hikes

    This beach is truly amazing! It has lots of space to find a spot to set up for the day. There are also friendly lifeguards on duty. It's a great spot for surfing and good for families with small kids.

    Hermanus all in all is a fantastic place to visit with loads of options for accommodation to suit every pocket and the same with restaurants. It is definitely THE whale watching capital

    It is an easy drive to the view point, with amazing views over Walker Bay and Hermanus.
    What we loved the most was the fynbos, which was out in all it's glory! Very special being able to go up close to see the flowers

    I tried many spots to see Whales but this spot is definitely aptly named. Did not see whales but saw lovely crashing waves, which I always find exciting

    It is a relatively steep climb to the top. The path is paved. Once there you have a spectacular 360 degree of Hermanus and the ocean. Excellent place for taking pictures.

    SA's own liveaboard scuba experience!! Extremely professional team, exceptional divemaster who found and pointed out extraordinary things for us, in what many call "lifeless" cold water reefs. Diving off a catamaran is much more comfortable than diving off a RIB, and relaxing on the netting during the SIT with the stunning mountains and Hermanus Bay Area as backdrop is a super experience on its own. The reefs and kelp areas are similar to those of the popular Simonstown area, and for macro divers there are loads of nudibranchs (some seemingly endemic), and the most stunning urchins. Like diving in a underwater garden or jewel box! I can highly recommend this operator and will make this dive an annual on the calendar as one would do with Aliwal Shoal and Sodwana! An experience not to be missed!

    Was Such an amazing ride. The guide was friendly , calm and really took his time with explaining how to control the horses. We were a group of 12 and had two guides, they worked really well together. We hardly had any hiccups on the trail, except for two horses getting really excited at one point, but even with that, because we all knew how to work well with the horses we were able to control them in no time. I'd definitely recommend it to everyone and I'm sure I'll be back sometime soon. Thank you to the amazing team at Heaven and Earth Trails.

    High praise for Southern right charters and staff, they were professional and friendly.
    We went on a lovely catamaran with inside and outside seating. We were lucky to see the Southern right whale, Bryde's whale and dolphins right next to boat. You had the option to buy an USP of your sightings on the trip.
