The Marine Hermanus is a spectacular Relais & Chateaux property set up high against the cliffs overlooking Walker Bay in Hermanus. Just an hour and a half's drive from Cape Town, this 5-star hotel offers not only some of South Africa’s top cuisine but also fantastic whale viewing in season. Set right in the heart of this popular seaside town, The Marine Hermanus is close to the central buzz of shops, cafes and restaurants.
Relax at the spa, sunbathe by the pool or explore the area at leisure - the exceptional hotel staff will gladly pack you a picnic lunch. We'd recommend a stroll along one of the many cliff-hugging walking paths for huge views of seemingly endless white, sandy beaches and the deep blue Indian Ocean. If you visit from late winter to early summer, keep an eye out for southern right whales - Hermanus offers the world's best land-based whale watching.
