The Western Cape region
Hermanus, as well as being a beautiful place to visit, is well known for being a great place to watch whales from the land from June to December. There is an interesting walk along the cliffs which takes you from the New Harbour, past the town, all the way to the white sands of Grotto Beach. Fernkloof Nature Reserve also offers spectacular walks through the fynbos with wonderful views of Walker Bay. There are many excellent, well priced restaurants in the town itself and the shopping area has managed to retain the feel of an old fishing village with its small streets and craft markets. Also in the town is the Hermanus Golf Club where you can play year round in idyllic surroundings.
Just out of town is the Hemel and Aarde Valley; the wines produced in this region are unique to South Africa due to a cool sea breeze and clay soil: go there for great wines, including chardonnay and an outstanding pinot noir, as well as its restaurants.
Half an hour by car, towards Cape Town, there is the delightful village of Kleinmond with its harbour, lagoon, horse riding, etc. Further down the coast road you pass the Harold Porter Botanical Gardens which are well worth a visit and finally you reach the penguins at Betty's Bay, it's a great day out. To the east and very close is the delightful village of Stanford, with its interesting architecture, art galleries and cruises up the river.
For a really exciting activity there is shark cage diving where you get really close to the Great White Shark - safely. Kayaking is a gentler and you can do this from the old harbour in Hermanus.
The Western Cape is one of the world's great tourist destinations. Cape Town itself is an essential visit for the Waterfront, Table Mountain and the Peninsula. The Winelands are only an hour's drive away and Paarl, Stellenbosh and Franschoek are well worth a visit. Many of the wineries also have world class restaurants. North of Cape Town the west coast is less frequented by tourists but villages like Paternoster are hidden gems. Further inland Montagu and the famous route 62 are within easy striking distance and nearby is the wonderful Sanbona Game Reserve, while to the east it's only a two hour drive to Cape Agulhas, the southernmost tip of Africa.
