I was lucky enough to spend the weekend in the ever-charming, quaint beach town of Hermanus. This little town somehow manages to envelop you into its daily routine on-goings, be it drifting around coffee shops, browsing through the abundance of decor shops, braaing fresh fish off the boats, watching the whales, falling asleep to the sound of the sea et cetera et cetera, need I say more? Featured some favourite spots of mine below, check them out in case you ever in the area…
My favourite Hermanus coffee spot; The Bistro at Just Pure. Great coffee and delicious food. Warm atmosphere with a small decor shop that’s been incorporated into the cafe.
For an authentic Italian experience visit the Deli, situated just off the Hermanus main road. This is a secret, local hotspot that has done well to be kept under-wraps from the passing tourists. For the best coffee in town, freshly baked croissants and genuine imported italian meats and cheeses then definitely give the Deli a visit, you might just have to wait a while, as service is not what they’re about.
Am very excited for this; it’s the annual Hermanus Whale Festival that takes place over the long weekend towards the end of September and am definitely missioning down for this. Have been twice before and its a rocking little beach festival, such fun! Lots of live street performances (which they close off the main street for), loads of whales and if the weather so promises maybe a little beach time. So if ever there was an excuse to head down there; then this may just be what you’re looking for?
