Things to do
There is no problem keeping busy while you are in Hermanus. Besides watching the whales, there are plenty of other exiting activities – Great White Shark Cage Diving, sea kayaking, fishing, horse riding, tandem paragliding, sand boarding, quad biking…
Or, if you are interested in something gentler – visit some of the world-renowned wineries up in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley for some free wine tasting, take a scenic walk on the cliff paths or in the nature reserves, go on a boat trip to watch more of the marine wildlife, gain insight into township life through a guided tour, do some shopping at the arts and crafts markets, enjoy a refreshing swim in the ocean or in one of the marine pools, or just stroll along one of the beautiful beaches.
When it comes to golfing the Hermanus Golf Club (27-hole course) and Arabella Golf Course (26 km from Hermanus) are considered two of the most beautiful golf courses in the country and offer world class golfing.
