“Voelklip's top beach” We swam and then sat for hours watching the whales in October, the sea was literally crawling with them. We went for lunch at a delightful restaurant just above the Old Harbour on the first floor and could not even count the number of whales there were so many.
“Fynbos Extraordinaire” Absolutely spectacular place to see the Fynbos. You can hike there at no cost but a small donation is appreciated. The trails are well maintained and well marked. Don't miss it if you are in Hermanus! Fernkloof Nature Reserve
“Deserves its title of world best land-based whale-watching site !” We came to Hermanus looking for whales.... and were not disappointed !!! The whales and their calves stay very close to the shore and put on a great show, breaching, playing around, showing off their tails and flippers... A great place for nature enthusiasts.
