Whale Coast
is the name given to a 250km stretch of coastline that lies to the east of Cape Town in the Western Cape of South Africa.

The area is best known for whale watching and shark cage diving, but there is much more on offer ... remote beaches, amazing dune-fields and superb landscapes in which to hike, ride, mountain bike or quad-bike ... ancient strandloper caves, remote lighthouses, historic farming communities, incredible fynbos flora ...

Hermanus ... is the most popular location along this coast, a relatively busy little town with a wide range of accommodation options.

Gansbaai and Kleinbaai ... is an area to the east of Hermanus which contains a handful of upmarket lodges set back in the fynbos clad hills inland from the ocean.

Stanford ... is a small town between these two areas, set back from the beautiful protected beaches of Walker Bay and containing at least one interesting accommodation option.

De Hoop Nature Reserve ... lies a good distance further east but, in our opinion, is the real jewel of this coast and well worth the extra hour drive out from Cape Town.
