As usual Hermanus does not disappoint when it comes to providing the necessities of your annual family holiday. Nature walks, wine tasting, lazy lunches, art ambles, cycling, swimming, sunbathing and shopping – Hermanus has it all.
- Start the day with a brisk walk along the cliff path that hugs Walker Bay. Walk all the way from Grotto beach to the New Harbour for serious exercise or choose to do a shorter route with a coffee stop at Burgundy along the way. Enjoy the Hermanus FynArts sculptures along the way at Gearings Point and save the dates 5 – 16 June 2015 for the third Hermanus FynArts festival.
- There is no excuse for missing out on the Hermanus Wine Route experience. Visitors can enjoy a personal experience at the many boutique style wineries. Nothing beats the decadence of a brunch pairing at Creation. Oysters with Sauvignon Blanc and
crayfish with Chardonnay. All the wines are served in Riedel glasses. Chocolate, tea, banting, cheese, vegetarian and a secret pairing with Creation’s range of wines ensures that there is a pairing for everyone.
- Head off to one of the beautiful beaches, cosy coves and tidal pools available in and around Hermanus. The nearby Onrus lagoon has a pool for children while parents can enjoy the waves of the bay. Alternatively, enjoy a cappuccino, milkshake or ice-cream at Davies Pool in Onrus while you wait for the tide to come in before you take the plunge.
- Adventure is only a short drive away to Hemel-en-Aarde Valley where SA Forest Adventure offers zip-sliding, paintball and quad bike rides. Saddle up and take a ride through the Sauvignon Blanc and Pinotage vineyards of Southern Right right up to a look-out over Hermanus and the Walker Bay.
- And then end the day with a sundowner glass of bubbly while enjoying vineyard views from the Champagne Verandah at La Vierge and planning your next visit to the wineries of the Hermanus Wine Route.
