Hermanus
Overberg Coast

The most prominent seaside resort at the Overberg coast is Hermanus, one of the oldest in South Africa. By 1920 it already had no less than 16 hotels.

Hermanus can righteously call itself the "whale capital of the world". Every year between July and November dozens of Southern Right Whales come to the calm waters of Walker Bay for breeding. At times, almost a hundred whale cows and their calves can be found in the bay. The marine mammals come within a few metres of the cliffs and can be watched at close range. A 15 kilometre long cliff path borders the coast with many well placed outlook points and benches.

Accommodation and further tourist information to be found on the blue Tourist Information page.
