Hermanus offers holiday makers and weekend visitors a variety of activities, and cultural attractions and there is no better place to experience it, than at House of Art.

These galleries showcase some of the best contemporary South African artists and are must-see galleries for all art lovers and collectors visiting the Western Cape.

Boutique Hostel

Located in the bustling town centre of Hermanus, Zzzone Boutique Hostel enjoys a prominent position close to a number of vibrant restaurants and bars and exciting activity pick-up points.

Designed with sleep in mind, Zzzone offers guests a fresh, sleep-centric take on the traditional backpackers.
