Lovers of the ocean may wish to consider a holiday in South Africa this summer, as the months May to November offer travellers the perfect opportunity for whale watching, it has been reported.

The sheltered bays and coves of the quaint town of Hermanus are some of the “best places in the world for land-based whale watching”, events guide WhatsOnWhen stated.

Southern right whales flock to the warm shallow waters of the seaside town to mate and calve their young and can be seen from the shoreline.

Located an hour and a half from Cape Town in the Western Cape, the town draws visitors keen to glimpse the mammals as close as 20 metres away in its winter months.

“More often than not, they’re more than happy to put on a performance,” About Cape Town said.

The town also offers travellers on holiday in South Africa beaches for swimming and walking, as well as the opportunity for hiking in the mountains.
