excellent alternative to Hermanus - We were not sure if De Kelders would have been the best choice to watch the whales instead of going to Hermanus. But after having stayed at De Kelders and also having made a short trip to Hermanus we definitely prefer De Kelders due to its familiar atmosphere, the beautiful beach and the excellent whale watching trips that are offered there.

Whale watching in De Kelders - A lovely spot to stay in beautiful guest houses which overlook the bay. Whale watching is great as there were several in the bay (dolphins had also visited the day before) and a pair came in very close to the shore for sometime so that guests and hikers could sit and watch them closely. A good cliff walk to a small clean beach but we were disappointed not to be able to walk onto the bigger Nature Reserve beach.

Tranquil - Peaceful and restful.

Whale Watching - De Kelders must be the best Whale Watching location in the World??!! We've been there 2 years in a row now and saw many, many whales. My Granddaughter, aged 5, made the following remark this past weekend: "This was my THIRD BEST DAY EVER!!! First Christmas, then my birthday and now the whales TODAY!!" That was after we had a "Whale of a Time" watching and photographing breaching whales all morning!!
