Hermanus is less than 2 hours drive from Cape Town and offers numerous activities for the whole family. Here are some of the ones you should definitely check out the next time you are in Hermanus.

1. Go Whale Watching

Hermanus is quite famous for its whale watching season, which is from June to the end of November. It's not uncommon to spot whales just by driving past the Hermanus beachfront. However, if you really want to get in on the action, it's best to get book a Whale Cruise.

2. Hike in Fernkloof Estate

The "3 Damme Hike" is a very popular route in the Fernkloof estate and is open to anyone. We highly recommend checking it out but if that seems too tough for you, check out the many other options available.

3. Visit a Wine Farm

The Hemel and Aarde valley is a road that houses some of the best wineries in South Africa. You will find some of the best places to drink wine and grab a bite to eat. We recommend the Chocolate Wine Pairing at Whale Haven and a 6 course meal at Creation.
