Day 2 – Golf or Spa in Hermanus

Hermanus golf club – On the southern coast of the African continent 120km to the west of Cape Town lies a quaint seaside fishing village that is home to the whales who annually return to its waters when calving and the equally impressive Hermanus Golf Course. South Africa’s premiere course architect, Peter Matkovich recently had the chance to play an important role in upgrading the clubs existing 18 holes to an impressive 27 holes and he grabbed it with both hands.

The new nine have aided the course in providing modern yet classically deigned holes that challenge the pro’s and offer unsurpassed reward to the amateur. The greens are of the highest standards and fairways will have your heart fluttering. Add the occasional swirling wind into the mix and you have got yourself an opponent.

The course doesn’t only challenge however, you are rewarded, hole after hole, with panoramic views that overlook the sparkling ocean and adding to the charm of the course is the ability to see the seasonal whales splashing about as you go about your game. During the whale season and holidays Hermanus’ population swells 5 fold yet despite the radical increase of feet on the fairways the club has built a solid reputation for having impressive year round playing standards.

If you don’t feel for golf, you can spend a day at the hotel’s Spa.

Day 3 – Whales and wines

Whale Watching

An exhilarating two-hour voyage to discover Walkerbay’s wonderful wildlife, stunning coastline and famous whales.  Depending on conditions and recent sightings, you could find yourself exploring the coast towards De Plaat or the sandy beaches of Hawston, in search of the stars of the whale watching trip – Southern Right Whales. On the way to our whale watching area we regularly encounter two different whale species inhabiting these waters, Humpback and Bryde’s whales.   Each trip is different, which makes the experience even more exciting! !  When we set out from the harbour we never know exactly what kind of whales wait for us out at sea on that particular day. While you enjoy your whale watching we will serve you crisps and cold drinks.
