Hermanus Overview

Hermanus at a glance

The Greater Hermanus area is situated between two large lagoons namely the Botrivier Lagoon on the Western side & the Kleinrivier Lagoon to the Eastern side, with the small Onrus Lagoon in the middle. A diversity of people live harmoniously in this beautiful heart of the Cape Whale Coast.

The mild Mediterranean climate, champagne air, mountains covered by Fynbos, a rich marine life and the best land-based whale watching in the world, make Hermanus one of the most magnificent and desirable eco-destinations in the country and encourages around-the-year tourism seasons during the winter months.

The beauty and magic of Hermanus have attracted many famous artists. The town has thus become home to boutiques, art galleries, cafes. Restaurants and craft markets provide a creative, cosmopolitan and hospitable framework to complement the attractions.

Wines from the Hemel en Aarde Valley (R320 Wine Route) are internationally applauded and proudly served with cuisine made from locally grown and nurtured ingredients.

Luxury hotels, boutique guest houses and a vast array of other accommodation cater for visitors from all over the world and the tourism-based economy is anchored with excellent medical and educational facilities. As a destination or a place to live, this seaside resort ranks high on any list.
