Everytime I visit the Cape I make a point of spending at least a day or two in Hermanus! It has something for everyone, young and old. Seriously, its not just about the fabulous whale-watching opportunities there is plenty to do here. Shopping, eating, walks and hikes, more eating (lots of good seafood restaurants with AMAZING views and also the beaches are lovely. Its a magical town for a holiday!

This is my favourite place to visit, i have been so many times and am always excited to go again. Whale spotting here is awesome. There are great little cafes and restuarants overlooking the water. Beaches are lovely and the markets are definitely worth a stroll through. there is such a vibrant yet relaxed atmosphere here. Its is such a welcoming town with a great vibe. A definite recommend to anyone.

I agree 100% with Kevin, if you visit Cape Town, go to Hermanus, even if its just for a day. Its a pretty town with great restaurants, great people and of course ... WHALES! Accommodation is plentiful and varied and lots of activities. Just GO!

All the hype you read about Hermanus is true! Its a fabulous town to visit, LOTS to do with great walks, beaches, hiking trails and of course the whales! Lots of socialising, great restaurants (casual and fine dining) and a great small town atmosphere. Should be on any visitors to do list even if its just a day trip.
