Cape Town originally developed as a victualling station for Dutch ships sailing to Eastern Africa, India, and Asia more than 200 years before the advent of the Suez Canal in 1869. Jan van Riebeeck's arrival on 6 April 1652 established the first permanent European settlement in sub-Saharan Africa. Cape Town quickly outgrew its original purpose as the first European outpost at the Castle of Good Hope. It was the largest city in South Africa until the growth of Johannesburg and Durban.  Cape Town is town twinned with Nice in France.

This lovely town, on the coastal area of the Overberg, is most well known for its awesome land based whale watching. Most of Hermanusí shoreline is rocky cliff, quite high above Walker Bay so it offers fantastic viewpoints from which to observe the huge southern right whales as they come into the bay to mate, calve and just hang out in the (relatively) warm water. (Itís warmer than Antarctica.) A whale crier blows a horn made from kelp and informs locals and tourists alike where the whales are to be found at any given time. The whales usually arrive in late winter Ė towards the end of June or beginning of July Ė and stay until autumn, with the last stragglers heading back down south in November, or even December. The town holds a whale festival every year from the end of September to the beginning of October.

There is a lovely path, most of which is wheelchair-friendly, along the cliff top. As well as the lovely sea views and sightings of whales, there are many pretty and fragrant flowers. It is a wonderful path and itís generally safe but use your common sense and donít walk alone on it when there are hardly any other people about. There is also a boat based whale watching operator based in the New Harbour.

Other attractions in this lovely town include a wine tasting cellar, a museum, in which you can see many exhibits pertaining to whaling and fishing, and a golf course.

The Marine Hermanus, Luxury Hotel, HERMANUS
Walter McFarlane, who had moved to Hermanus from nearby Elgin in the 1880's, built the Marine Hotel in 1902.  The hotel started off quite modestly with a mere 21 rooms and over the years the hotel has seen numerous extensions and changes of ownership. Following the purchase of the Marine by David Rawdon in the early 1980's and four years of painstaking renovation, thirteen years of successful management ensued. However a new custodian was required to take this grand old lady into the new millennium.  Liz McGrath became the new owner of the Marine Hotel in March 1998 and so began the complete makeover of this historic hotel.

In summer, migratory water birds arrive in their thousands from as far away as Russia. Schaapen Island, in the middle of the lagoon, is bird sanctuary so itís strictly off limits, but you can paddle really close to it and watch the gannets, gulls and cormorants squabbling amongst themselves. The West Coast National Park borders on the town and sweeps down to the southern end of the lagoon. Itís a good place for spotting small game but the major attraction is the colourful spring flowers.
