Hermanus is a charming town with the village square at it’s centre. The square is surrounded by shops, restaurants and cafes etc. Everything is within easy walking distance and you are literally a stones thrown from the bay.

Such a beautiful square where you can dine, shop and walk. Many South African dresses and jewels. We bought typical SA necklace made from wood for a reasonable price.

Excellent mall, the mall is very well located clean and well lighted, most of the restaurants are seafronted, so you can watch the whales playing in the water while having lunch. The big variety of shops makes it a must visit.
