The beautiful seaside town of Hermanus offers the best shore-based whale watching in the world: the magnificent creatures flock to Walker Bay every year and can be observed only metres away from the cliffs and paths lining the shore. The town has its own unique “whale crier”, whose blasts on a kelp horn signal the presence of whales. Besides its natural beauty and crisp coastal air, the area is also renowned for its quality wines, with leading estates lining the flanks of the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley. In recent years Hermanus has also become something of a mountain biking mecca, with trails springing up on the nearby hills and valleys.
