Hermanus, Western Cape, South Africa

Travelled down to Hermanus, a seaside town, in the Western Cape of South Africa.

Food And Wine


On to the small seaside resort or Hermanus. The backdrop to this town is spectacular with it’s high mountains. Literature said that there could be sightings of whales from the shore, but I think we were a little late in the season and unlike the unpretentious town of Mossel Bay where you could watch dolphins cavort and surf in the waves here there were just a few fishermen catching crayfish. 134 more words
