 When to Visit Hermanus and Why -

A Reason for every Season!

Are you perhaps wondering when to visit Hermanus? Being a seaside town, there could be a misconception that the only “good” time to visit Hermanus is during the summertime. While this may be true from the point of view of sunbathers, but it’s not at all a true reflection of what Hermanus and all that the surrounding areas have to offer. So, in order to assist you, our guests, with choosing a time to visit to Hermanus, we’ve compiled a list of tantalizing reasons for every season. We shall expand more in depth on the different activities that are offered in our forthcoming blogs.

Hermanus Beach at Voelklip

SUMMER: December, January, February, March

AUTUMN:  March April and May

whale festival

WINTER: June July and August

Fynbos at Hermanus Market

SPRING: September, October and November

The evidence points to the simple fact that Hermanus is a great place to visit no matter when you decide to come down. Every time of year has its special features and the heart and culture of the town never dies. People may be cuddled up a bit more in winter, but they’ll still give you a smile and a wave just the same as in summer.  And the clean air, beautiful coastline and amazing flora and fauna are for the most part constant and ready to welcome you to the little town with love and beauty.
