Hermanus

Fisherman's Village

Between the rocky coastline and the green mountains lies "the village", as it is referred to by the locals. The residents of Hermanus have tried to keep the fisherman's village style of this town in tact, over the years. This neighbourhood is famous for Southern Right Whale watching during winter and spring, and is a popular retirement town. With a relaxed lifestyle, Hermanus is a fisherman's paradise and perfect for those who appreciate a slower pace of life, surrounded by majestic natural wonders.
