Sea-view accommodation in Hermanus

The best thing about accommodation in Hermanus is that you’re never very far from the sea, and you’ll almost always have a view of the ocean. This is hardly surprising since the thing that put the town on the international map is the fact that it boasts the best land-based whale watching experience in the world. During the migration season for southern right and humpback whales, you can stand on almost any spot with a view of the ocean and expect to see the giants of the sea playing in the waves. It’s a truly magical experience and people come back again and again to enjoy this miraculous sight.

Accommodation with a sea view from your room is first prize when staying in Hermanus. Imagine getting to wake up in the morning, draw back the curtains and look out over the ocean. Between the months of June and November, you can expect to see whales in amongst the waves. You can also watch storms as they roll past the coastline in winter, and see the bright sunshine beating down on beachgoers in the summer. In the evenings, you can watch the sky change colour as the sun sets and see the oranges, reds and pinks reflect in the water.

There is a wide variety of accommodation available for a holiday along the Cape Whale Coast. You can pick anything from campsites and caravan parks through to luxury hotels or guest houses. There are beautiful bed and breakfasts dotted throughout the town of Hermanus and in the surrounding areas. If you want privacy and a home-away-from-home feel for your holiday, then try out self-catering accommodation. There are small apartments available if you’re travelling on your own or just the two of you. Alternatively, you can rent out entire houses that are perfect for bigger families or large groups.

Getting a sea view with your accommodation doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t take the time to explore the full coastline in the area. There is Grotto Beach, which has blue flag status and is up there with the best beaches in the world. It’s a great place for catching a tan, playing in the sand, surfing the waves and enjoying the natural beauty of Hermanus. Aside from this spot, there are several smaller beaches dotted along the shore where you can put up an umbrella and relax on your towel all day if you want. Some are quite small and secluded, making them perfect for a romantic retreat or just to get away from the crowds.
