Everyone loves Hermanus – I’d even go so far as to say that everyone loves Hermanus a little too much.
Each time I’ve visited the Overstrand town, it’s been in peak holiday season – the cliffs cluttered with December strollers or sharp-eyed searchers hoping to spot a denizen of the deep. Preferring to shy away from the crowds, the winter season remains my ideal time of year to explore – the weather is temperate and the necessity to book for dinner falls away. There is also an abundance of parking.
It was just this sort of experience that I enjoyed over the final weekend of May. Perched on the cliffs overlooking the wide expanse of Walker Bay, I hibernated in one of @oceanelevenguesthouse’s Deluxe rooms, taking in the unadulterated peace and quiet. Unquestionably one of the most relaxing places I’ve had the pleasure of staying in, Ocean Eleven is a Hermanus institution for anyone wanting to escape the tourist traps and instead opt to reconnect with nature and oneself.
It was weekend spent meeting pugs and pears at @hermanuscountrymarketsa, tasting the finest Hemel and Aarde cultivars at Wine & Company, getting messy with prawns at @harbourrock_, heaping on the garlic at @rossis_hermanus and exploring the town's famous clifftop walk.
Give my post a look, give it a read, let me know what you think? I'm hoping I did Hermanus justice – link in bio.
