Things to do in and around Hermanus

There is no one activity to single out when it comes to the many things to do in and around Hermanus. From whale watching and shark cage diving in Walker Bay to zip lining and quad biking, playing golf at the awe-inspiring 27 hole Hermanus Golf Club, tasting Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and many more fine wines, comparing craft beers, appreciating gin, exploring our art galleries and attending the Hermanus First Friday Art Walk… Hermanus is where you can escape to nature and breathe the champagne air along our spectacular cliff paths.

Meet the world’s only Whale Crier as he alerts you to the whereabouts of the whales by blowing his kelp horn.

Admire the diverse floral fynbos kingdom while hiking or biking in the Fernkloof Nature Reserve or laze on one of our pristine Blue Flag beaches.
