A Host of things to do in Hermanus
Western Cape, South Africa
Hermanus may seem like a sleepy fishermans village on the Cape coast. If you have seen the whales or walked the clifftop, you may feel like you have done it all, but Hermanus offers so much more than meets the eye.
Firstly if you live in Cape Town, chances are you have visited Hermanus for the day but have you ever spent the night? There are so many stunning hotels in Hermanus and once you have booked in at them you will never want to leave. For example the famous Marine Hotel on the beachfront offers luxurious five-star accommodation with sea views, direct access to the cliff-path and into town as well as a pool and a fabulous spa for guests to enjoy. If you are looking for something a bit more affordable, try the Misty Waves Hotel which also offers a quaint spa, Jacuzzi and pool while the restaurant offers some of the best sea views in town!
The owner of the Misty Waves Hotel, also owns South African Forest Adventures. Here you can spend the day playing paintball or flying through the trees on 9 zip slides that criss-cross through the forest. Here you can also embark on one of the Cape’s only wine tasting quad safaris through the Hemel en Aarde Wine Valley. This unique valley is home to a number of award-winning wine estates, most of which offer free tastings and fabulous restaurants where you can enjoy a gourmet meal with spectacular views over the vineyards and on towards the ocean.
At the base of the Hemel en Aarde Wine Route lies a small village of restaurants, cafes, boutique stores and a wine shop that allows you to taste while you shop for wine from a huge selection of wine varietals.
After a long day seeing the sights and sounds of Hermanus, why not relax with a drink in the lounge at the Marine or the restaurant at Misty Waves before falling asleep on a bed of clouds?
