"Hermanus" South Africa Things to Do Tip by MichaelFalk1969

South Africa Things to Do: 727 reviews and 1,118 photos


Hermanus features one of the best beaches in South Africa, as you can easily see in the photo. It has good restaurants, too, and is a popular base for Whale and Shark watching. In Whale Season the Whales come very close to the beach so you can spot them from land. Unfortunately this is also the time when Hermanus is overcrowded with tourists, so book in advance. Shark Watching (boatbased) is possible all year long though february/march are not the best times to spot them.

Address: Hermanus
Directions: Garden Route

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
