Tourism in Hermanus is a massive economy driver.....we must ensure Hermanus continues to be a world leading tourism destination
HERMANUS READY TO WELCOME VISITORS
STARTING Date was – 7th to 10th Aug, 2020 - and will continue forever....
This week visitors to Hermanus will be welcomed by a tablecloth-and-bedding banner, displayed in the Old Harbour.
This “hospitality flag”, stitched together from squeaky clean linen by tourism business owners, is a warm invitation to visitors from across the Western Cape. The innovative banner signals that Hermanus is collectively open for business. And it symbolises the town’s commitment to offering visitors the best of the Whale Coast in a safe, hygienic environment.
Hermanus boasts world-class tourism experiences for domestic travelers. The Southern Right Whales have arrived right on cue, with many whales now being spotted from the cliff paths that offers perfect viewing spots of this remarkable annual migration.
Restaurants, art galleries, wineries, adventure activities and nature reserves are all ready for rediscovery. And so is the irresistibly beautiful countryside surrounding the town.
The very popular Hermanus Country Market at the Cricket Ground re–opens this Saturday 8th August.
Hospitality establishments, business owners and their staff have used the Covid 19 lockdown period to implement hygiene and safety protocols that enable visitors to enjoy the diversity and natural beauty of the region safely. And the town’s famous champagne air is an immune booster in its own right.
“The doors and hearts of Hermanus are wide open. We can’t wait to welcome you!” says Frieda Lloyd, Cape Whale Coast Tourism Manager, “We rely on Capetonians and residents of surrounding towns to take up the open invitation we’ve extended. We have missed you and look forward to welcoming our loyal friends back and treating you like VIPs!”
Why go to Hong Kong, Houston or Hamburg, if you can go to Hermanus? The travel restrictions still in place in South Africa provide a unique opportunity for Capetonians and residents of neighbouring towns to explore beyond their neighbourhoods, and remind themselves why Hermanus is one of the premium tourist destinations in the world.
Hermanus awaits. See you soon.
