Famous for whale watching, beaches and nature, as well as its food and wine, Hermanus really is a destination that ticks all the boxes: its palpable history, thriving art scene, boutique shopping and busy programme of festivals, concerts and events.

The area around Hermanus, known as the Overberg, is an area of natural contrasts, from the deep green apple orchards of Elgin to the sweeping canola fields of Caledon, and the rugged mountainous coast where marine life flourishes. The natural surroundings are at once diverse, and lovers of the outdoors are spoilt for choice with activities.

Whether you're looking to explore the tastes of the Overberg, immerse yourself in art, history and culture on the coast or play in the Overberg outdoors, an outdoor lover’s dream, there's something to satisfy everyone.
