Hermanus Old Harbour Hermanus, in the heart of the Whale Route, is just 127km from Cape Town on the Cape south coast. It has developed from a rustic whaling and fishing village into one of the world’s best whale-viewing sites (via land or boat) from June to November. It’s also home to the world’s only Whale Crier, who signals whale locations using a kelp horn. The secluded, rock-sheltered coves and the long, pristine beaches are perfect for strolling, bathing and surfing. The mountains behind the village offer a range of hikes through fynbos with beautiful views of Walker Bay.
