Shore's Edge is the place to be no matter the season. A stone's throw from some of the most beautiful beaches along Walker Bay, it is the ideal spot to soak up the sun's rays in summer or curl up on the couch in front of the cosy log fireplace in winter.

Further details outdoors

From July to November whales can be admired in their multitudes from the guesthouse, cliff path, or during a boat cruise. Shark cage diving, a round of golf or a hike through the nature reserves ensures a healthy appetite!

The Western Cape region

The Old Harbour Museum gives visitors an insight into the history of the village. There is a telescope above the Old Harbour for visitors to see the giant visitors when they are far out in the bay. De Wet's Huis Photo Museum provides a fantastic photographic documentation of the history and development of the town. The Whale House presents daily slide shows throughout the year explaining the life cycle of our fascinating annual visitors, the Southern Right Whales.

The beauty and magic of Hermanus has attracted many famous artists. The town has thus become home to a number of Galleries that house both local and international works.

The village holds several Festivals and Events every year, including a Passion Play in the Old Harbour; celebrates the arrival of the whales in the bay with the Whale Festival (which is an art and environmental feast); offers some of the best local and national theatre productions (mainly in Afrikaans) at the Kalfiefees; serves the most glorious seafood at the Hawston Sea Festival (December); and chases away winter chills at the Food & Wine Fair (July) with delicious cuisine and delectable wines from over 60 exhibitors.


More than 300 activities include whale watching, shark cage diving in Walker Bay, abseiling, treetop tours, quad biking and a 27 hole Hermanus golf course. Discover our wine route, art route, speciality shops and pamper boutiques. Escape to nature and breathe the champagne air along our spectacular cliff paths.

Meet the world’s only Whale Crier as he alerts you to the whereabouts of the whales by blowing his kelp horn. Admire the diverse floral fynbos kingdom while hiking or biking in the Fernkloof Nature Reserve or laze on one of our pristine Blue Flag beaches.
