Hermanus has often been referred to as the "Riviera of the South" in bygone days, and for all intents and purposes, maintained its status albeit with a modern fusion of luxury holiday homes dotting the pristine coastline, funky cafes, coffee shops and eateries overlooking Walker Bay, speciality shops to delight even the most selective shopper and craft markets to keep you busy for hours.
Probably best known for its renowned Cliff Paths which meander along the coastline, Hermanus has become a whale watchers paradise. Visitors come annually from far and wide to view one of nature's spectacular events when whales come close into Walker Bay to calve. Their antics will amuse you for hours on end, so be prepared. Pack a picnic or have lunch at one of the many little eateries along the magnificent coastline where the uninterrupted views of Walker Bay will ensure endless pleasure during the whale season.
Hermanus is home to some of the finest beaches in the world. There are several beaches from which to choose, Grotto Beach being possibly the most popular with it’s picturesque mountain backdrop and expansive powdery white beach sand.
Grotto Beach is a Blue Flag beach stretching for kilometres. Dutchies Restaurant, a play park, lots of parking and excellent ablution facilities make this a favourite beach amongst the holidaymakers. Grotto Beach is situated towards the Voëlklip side of Hermanus. Hawston Beach, in the village of Hawston, is a magnificent beach with picnic and braai areas. Voëlklip Beach has ablution facilities, is a good surf spot and great for tanning in the sun. A definite family favourite. Sandbaai offers rock pools and great snorkeling, while Onrus Beach has great bodyboarding and surfing, as well as very safe swimming. Breakfast Bay, situated at Vermont, is a good picnic spot and very sheltered beach. It is very popular with sandboarders.
Another famous feature of the surrounding area is the white shark cage diving and surface viewing. It has become one of South Africa's biggest tourist attractions in the past few years, with most of the white shark dive operators working out of Gansbaai, just a few minutes' drive from Hermanus.
Please note we do not accommodate children younger than five years of age.
For the B&B tariff children pay half price.
