The Cape Coast

Rugged cliffs, invigorating air and stirring views characterise the charming town of Hermanus.

Situated between the Kleinrivier Mountains and the Atlantic Ocean on the Cape Coast, this is the world’s best location for land-based whale watching.

Pathways along the cliff edge allow you to explore this wild and beautiful Cape coastline, whilst the beaches themselves are clean, safe and easily accessible.

Whale Watching

Hermanus Whale Watching

From May to December, the Southern Right Whale (Eubalaena australis) graces Walker Bay with its massive presence, making Hermanus whale watching a popular activity over this period.

August is the height of the birthing season when calves as young as a couple of hours old with their very protective mothers can be seen from the wonderful vantage points at Birkenhead House.

These magnificent mammals were threatened by extinction at one stage but granted international protection in 1935.

Your stay at Birkenhead House will allow you the very best views for Hermanus whale watching, making your stay even more memorable.
