Hermanus has stunning sandy blue flag beaches where you can swim, surf, sun bathe and even go horse riding. Grotto beach, our main beach, extends for approximately 20 kilometres, flanked on the one side by the sea and the other side a lagoon and a nature conservation area. This whole area is a bird watchers paradise with enormous lagoons, coastal birds and a mountain nature reserve which boarders the lagoon and the town.
We have excellent wine estates that are just out of town some of which have top restaurants for lunch or dinner. Shark cage diving is offered at Gansbaai which is a short drive away or transport can be arranged. We also have a light aircraft that will take you on whale spotting trips or to a game farm.
The cliff paths extend for over 10 km’s and are incredibly scenic. We also have a nature reserve that borders the town and has fantastic walks into the mountains. Bird watching is highly recommended as we have the sea in front of us, a mountain nature reserve behind us and 2 huge lagoons on either side.
