A beach chic stay great for whale watching

At the heart of the southern right whale migratory route, the glorious oceanfront setting of the Abalone Guest Lodge provides stunning views of the surrounding hills. There's direct access to the scenic cliff path which makes for a lovely 25-minute stroll to Hermanus. The superb location also offers easy access to the range of activities on offer in Hermanus, from wine tasting and golf, to sea kayaking and shark cage diving. With light and spacious boutique rooms of natural hues, complete with South African art and décor, you'll find this a comfortable retreat. Interconnecting rooms are ideal for families and in whale season (May-November for southern right whales), we recommend a room with sea views so you can whale watch from your own balcony.
