Fernkloof Nature Reserve offers many amazing hikes along the mountains of Hermanus boasting views of Walker Bay and our very unique fynbos vegetation. There is a beautiful walk up to the 3 dams next to Fernkloof Nature Reserve. It is a steep climb, but the swim in 1 of the 3 dams make up for the walk. Park here and hike up for a chilled afternoon: https://goo.gl/maps/C14XKXh6LWx

Toward the left of Hermanus Town: For amazing walks on a massive stretch of white sandy beach, go to Grotto. It's also great for swimming but a little crowded in summer for our liking. If you're into kite surfing take a stroll over to the lagoon side and check out some epic moves.

The Framehouse, as they call it, boasts with uninterupted views over the Upper Hemel-en-Aarde Valley and De Bos dam. They offer wines from both their Hermanus and Wellington farms and have some interesting finds that other farms don't have. Ask about the clone garden and the special walking trails on their farm. Take home a proudly South African Protea, as they are also one of the largest exporters of the beautiful South African flowers.

WHALES are seasonal but FANTASTIC
Well typically the whale season in Hermanus is between June and December every year. Some years the Southern Right whales have arrived as early as April but the usual time for them to start arriving is at the end of May. Whales migrate to Hermanus in the winter months, when the sun is weaker and the waters cooler, but still optimal for them to give birth and nurture their calves in our protected Walker Bay.
If you are keen to go out on a Whale Watching Cruise we recommend Southern Right Charters and they’ll be operational from early June until end of November. Let us know if we can make the booking on your behalf and you can pay them directly on the day of your cruise. We have a good relationship with the company and they always make a plan to get our guests a spot, even in high season. We think they are the best in the business and all charters charge the same across the board.

The best land based whale watching spot along the Hermanus Cliffpath. Not a lot of people know this, but at this point the waves break in the perfect way to tickle the bellies of the whales and they love hanging out here.
