Take the Flight of Giants and see the whales from the air with African Wings. If the whales aren't in the bay African Wings will whizz you off to see the big 5 - just a 30 minute flight away.


The nearby town of Gansbaai is known as the Great White Shark capital of the world. Just off the coast there are 2 islands teeming with sea life - Dyer Island home to a breeding colony of Jackass Penguins and Geyser Island a seal breeding ground. A veritable feast for hungry Great White Sharks. There are several shark diving tour operators that offer shark cage diving for the brave and surface viewing for those who'd prefer not to get too close. Shark diving shuttles leave from Hermanus daily.

Best sushi in town

We think the sushi at The Rock is the best sushi in Hermanus. Our favorites on the menu are the rock rose and sushi sandwiches par excellence. And we are always impressed by the beautiful view.
