Hermanus is a friendly and picturesque little town that is about a 150 km (approx. 90 minutes) away from Cape Town's City Centre. Toursits and locals frequently choose Hermanus as their holiday destination as it is popular due to the fantastic whale watching experience one is able to witness during the South African spring. Once you have seen a whale breach from up close, you will come back to Hermanus to experience it again and again. Also, each year, during the last week of September, the official Hermanus Whale Festival takes place. You can also find Hermanus Accommodation should you plan a holiday on this website.
