90 minutes drive from Cape Town and only 20min from Kleinmond Hermanus is the heart of the Whale Route – and offers some of the best land based whale watching in the world. This is where the enormous Southern Right Whale comes to calve and whale watching is best between the months of September and November. In addition, Hermanus offers a host of outdoor activities for nature lovers in the surrounding mountains and Fernkloof Nature Reserve. Long stretches of white sandy beaches are ideal for long walks and a favourite with families. Once a small fishing village, Hermanus has now become abustling seaside resort and is extremely popular with holidaymakers in the summer season. There is excellent accommodation available, as well as many quaint shops, coffee shops and restaurants and a weekly outdoor craft market.
