Hermanus Hotels

Cape Overberg at the southern tip of Africa, lies the Western South Africa 's best kept secret. Simply called the Overberg, it's the traveller's reward for breaching the mountain barriers which divide it from the rest of the country.

The Overberg coast, also called the 'Whale Coast', has the distinction of splitting two oceans. At Agulhas, the southernmost tip of the continent, the waters are cleaved into the Atlantic and Indian Oceans.

It is here in Hermanus South Africa that one gets to experience some of the best "Whale watching" in the world whether it be on land, at sea or by air. Most of (if not all) the Hermanus hotels that we have in our portfolio offer easy access to great views, restaurants and all the wonder of this quaint coastal town.
