A new addition to Hermanus, it’s a little out of the way but worth making a special trip for. Watch (and catch the aromas) as Justin Dods does the coffee roasting. Toni Smith is the foodie and believes in fresh and healthy, and when locals flock to a place like this you know it’s good. It’s a breakfast and lunch spot and closes at 4pm so make sure you get there early.

It’s easy to miss this little coffee shop but it’s the buzziest place in town for locals, and the table of freshly baked cakes and goodies is hard to resist. There are excellent juices, and a white and bright décor with flashes of colour that add to the modern clean feel. This is the spot for a cream cheese and lemon-meringue pancake. It’s child friendly, with lots of space, and is ideal for coffee and cake, and your new books.

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 to the mountain.

Char’d Grill & Wine Bar is a bespoke establishment in the Village Square on the famous Hermanus waterfront. While meat eaters have come to accept the view that a good steak has to be one of the traditionally tender and juicy cuts, at Char’d the emphasis is on unusual and innovative cuts of beef as well as the old time classics. Supplied by artisan butchers who are following the modern global trend to utilise as much of the carcass as possible, these new wave, alternative cuts are no longer flying under the radar and are presenting diners with a whole new culinary experience.

Most people visiting The Burgundy Restaurant, on the very edge of the bay and only a few metres away from Hermanus’s historic old harbour, always come back. Once you visit, which we hope you will do soon, you might well return because here you will be greeted by not only the warm smiles of our staff, but also, quite possibly, the smell of artisanal bread baking. "The word “Hospitality” in the new testament comes from two Greek words. The first word means “Love” and the second word means “Strangers”. It’s a word that means Love of Strangers." - Nancy Leigh Demoss

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.

Onrus Beach is a lovely beach in the holiday town of Onrus, near Hermanus in the Western Cape. While lying in the warm white sand, beach-goers can enjoy marvellous views of the surrounding mountains and Atlantic Ocean. The beach is located next to a warm, calm lagoon, making it superb for family outings. The little ones can enjoy paddling in the safe waters of the lagoon, while older kids and adults can brave the chilly waters of the sea. The beach is also fantastic for surfing, sunbathing, and swimming. The Milkwood restaurant overlooks the beach and is a great spot for filling empty bellies and nursing cocktails as the sun sets. There are also toilets and plenty of parking.

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
