How to Spend 2 Days in Hermanus

How to Spend 2 Days in Hermanus

The seaside town of Hermanus is a quaint coastal escape perfect for marine-life enthusiasts, wine connoisseurs, and nature lovers. Whether you’re after the adrenaline rush of coming face-to-face with a shark or looking forward to watching the sunset over the ocean with a glass of wine, with two days in Hermanus you can do it all—here’s how.    

Day 1: Watching Whales

**Morning:**Start off your first day in Hermanus with a stroll along the cliff path known for some of the best land-based whale watching in the world. Be sure to listen for the uniquely Hermanus “Whale Crier”—a person whose job it is to alert the public when whales are sighted. 

**Afternoon:**Scanning for whales from the boardwalk is only the beginning of your whale-watching adventures in Hermanus. Join a guided whale-watching boat tour to increase your chances of spotting the majestic mammals up close and learn about whales and their habitat from an onboard specialist. 

**Night:**Return to Hermanus in time to watch the sunset over Walker Bay on your way to tuck into a hearty meal after your day’s adventures. Enjoy fresh seafood and wine at one of the many authentic downtown restaurants, where you can expect to dine alongside locals.

Day 2: From Shark Diving to Wine Tasting

**Morning:**Start off day two by heading back into the coastal waters, but this time you’re not just admiring marine life from the deck of a boat. Instead, go below the surface to watch for great white sharks from the security of a cage. 

**Afternoon:**Hermanus isn’t just about the marine action; it’s also surrounded by mountains filled with biodiversity and hiking opportunities. Spend the afternoon on a walking tour of Fernkloof Nature Reserve, or see more of the surrounding region on an ATV tour that takes you through rivers, forests, and farmland. 

**Night:**No stay in Hermanus is complete without a visit to one of the nearby wineries. Start off the evening with a vineyard tour and wine tasting before settling in for a gourmet meal. At the end of the evening, take advantage of a provided shuttle to return to your Hermanus accommodations.
