Best Land-Based Whale Watching in the World
Hermanus, situated 120 km from Cape Town is a sought after holiday destination and also known as the heart of the Cape Whale Route. Hermanus has grown from a rustic fishermen's village to being acknowledged as the world's best land-based whale watching destination. In places whales can be viewed from as close as 30 metres from the cliff paths. The peak time for sighting whales on a daily basis, is during August to November, although they start arriving as early as June and have been spotted as late as the end of January. For the more adventurous, who wish to view and take spectacular photographs of the great white shark face to face can do so by going underwater in a specially designed steel cage.

The healing powers of the hot springs have been renowned for centuries and were enjoyed by the original Khoi-San inhabitants. Today the Spa attracts many visitors to indulge in the pleasures and benefits of all it has to offer.

The southern-most tip of the African continent
L'Agulhas is the southern-most town in Africa. Being located at the very tip of the legendary foot of Africa, it is a prime tourist destination. As determined by the International Hydrographic Organisation, the strong Agulhas stream of the Indian Ocean and the cold Benguela stream of the Atlantic Oceans meet south of Cape Agulhas Lighthouse. The koppie (hill) behind the lighthouse offers a panoramic view of the point where the two oceans meet. In the shallow gullies near the lighthouse, the remains of ancient fish traps (made by packing layers of rocks around the pools) where the original Khoe khoe inhabitants collected their fish can still be seen.
