Destination - Hermanus
I have been to Hermanus two to three times a year since I discovered it in 2007. I shall keep returning and would love to retire there.Hermanus is a beautiful buzzing coastal town with a little bit of everything and the most beautiful beaches and friendly people. I just sit along the cliff path and watch the whales for ages during the season. Such entertaining creatures! The cliff path itself is great for either a gentle stroll or a brisk energising walk. Restaurants at either end ensure a lovely refreshment stop before tackling the return walk or if you are so inclined, just call a Riki...see more

Life without whales
Like previous reviews Hermanus is about whales.We visited out of season. Bettie's Bay is reasonably close by which affords the visitor to a great experience to view cape penguins.
Town of Hermanus
Holiday or weekend stay
Sandbaai is a beautiful place, the beach front is what appeals so much with the remote feeling you get even if there are other people about. It is convenient and has all the necessary shops and amenities nearby. Hermanus centre is only a short 10 minutes away. Lovely place and definitely one of my favourites. Riette
Town of Hermanus
Sandbaai is a small, quiet community between Onrus and Hermanus. It's just across from the gateway to the Hemel-en-Aarde wine route. Lots of lovely restaurants and shops just across the way. The beach is dog-friendly and uncrowded. Mostly families and children exploring all the rock pools. A fantastic place for a quiet family getaway.
Fantastic Whale Viewing
We enjoyed our stay in Hermanus, even though it was just for two days. The lovely walk along the promenade, it is well kept and clean, and there are many different restaurants to choose from. There is a lovely little wine shop that must be visited. The staff are well-informed and offer friendly service. The wine route is also exceptional with lovely and interesting varieties of wine for tasting.
