Just outside of Cape Town, the Cape Whale Coast stretches from the small town of Gordon’s Bay to Gansbaai along the Western Coast. It can easily be called ‘Heaven on Earth’. The pristine stretch of South African coastline is flanked by mountains and the Atlantic Ocean.
The main towns on the Whale Coast are Hermanus, Stanford, and Gansbaai; but along the way, you will discover a collection of villages, farms, rivers and wine farms. Discover the Southern Right whales who come to these waters to give birth, endemic fynbos, penguins, golf courses and hiking trails. The Whale Coast is a great add-on to any Cape Town itinerary.
