Other than the usual coastal draw of sun-lounging and swimming, the ocean here offers a whole host of options to tickle your water-loving fancies. Visit between June and December and a whale watching tour will be included in your base itinerary – you’ll be in with the chance of catching the elusive Southern Right whales, as well as Humpback and Bryde’s whales, dolphins, seals, penguins and other marine birds.
Shark cage diving is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that draws many a tourist to Hermanus. Quite the marmite of travel activities, this could either be a dream come true or your worst nightmare, but either way you won’t be forgetting it in a hurry – in saying that, if you had to watch the 1970s hit “Jaws” through your fingers, then maybe give this one a miss.
Once you’ve had your underwater fill, head inland to make like Tarzan as you take to the trees on an incredible zipline tour – the only way to see South Africa’s forests. Or, perhaps learn to sandboard on one of Africa’s highest commercial sandboarding dunes in nearby Betty’s Bay. Thrill seekers beware: Hermanus may just steal your heart.
