Spookfontein is a boutique wine estate in the Hemel and Aarde Valley - neighbouring the coastal town and whale watching capital of Hermanus. The name ‘Spook’ - Dutch for “ghost” - derives from the myth that one can discern a “spirit” within the swirls of the flowing spring. Nested between The Kleinriver - and Babilonstoring Mountains, this 313 hectare farm offers wine aficionados a beautiful variety of robust wines - grown from rocky soil and nurtured by Walker Bay’s timeless cold sea air, blown in by the Cape Doctor on summer evenings. The farm, originating in 1847 is a Fynbos heaven, with a mere 14 hectares under vine and Olive trees growing stoically on the road.

This wide, seemingly-untouched beach in Hermanus is flanked by the mountains on one side and the ocean on the other, creating a retreat that is as tranquil as it is exquisite. So, it is no wonder that Grotto Beach was awarded Blue Flag status in 2013; recognising its ecological value, beauty, safety and accessibility. Grotto Beach is safe for swimming, surfing, stand-up paddling, body-boarding, and hydrofoiling. The sand is inviting for those that want to enjoy playing beach games, building sand castles, or soaking up the rays while enjoying a good book. Stroll hand-in-hand down the long beach, or work up a sweat with a jog. The entire beach is an impressive 18 kilometres long.

Langbaai Beach is a more private beach, mainly used by locals situated between Kammabaai and Kwaai Water (Stormy Waters). Therefore parking is very limited and the beach more isolated. This is ideal for a quiet picnic or a romantic day on the beach as it also offers safe swimming at low tide, is clean and well kept and is very picturesque. However, no bathrooms are available. Langbaai is accessible at 6th Avenue Voelklip, steps have been cut into the rock to make it easier to access. Sit back and watch the crashing waves which force themselves into the narrow cove before splashing onto the beach.

The cliff path at Hermanus is one of the town's most beautiful features. It meanders for 11 km along the rugged coastline, between the New Harbour to the west, and Piet-se-Bos, just beyond Grotto Beach, to the east. The entire strip of coast is protected within the Fernkloof Nature Reserve, proclaimed in 2000, in a bid to protect the fragile ecosystem alongside Walker Bay. It is on the Hermanus cliff path that some of the world's best land-based whale watching occurs (August/September). Set at regular intervals on rocks and cliffs that overlook the sea are a series of wooden benches for that very purpose.

As the name suggests, it is conveniently situated in the heart of the old fisherman’s village just above the Old Harbour, in close proximity to the major tourist attractions and accommodation establishments. In fact some of the old fisherman’s cottages still stand on the piazza and though declared heritage sites with original brickwork and walls, are now home to cozy and intimate restaurants – well worth a visit for that special candle light occasion.
