"Hermanus" Hermanus Tip by kngtut

Hermanus, Cape Town: 6 reviews and 4 photos

Hermanus is about an hour from Cape Town, but well worth the drive. In August - October it is famous for the whales that descend on its shores. It also has numerous wonderful shops and restauarants. Accommodation ranges from 5* to cosy bed & breakfasts. The local tidal pool is a great place for a safe dip in the ocean. The nearby Hamilton Russell Winefarm is a good choice for superb wine tasting and buying. Get friendly with a local and they will tell u the ins and outs.
