From the airport you have choice of two routes to Hermanus.

1. Leave the airport turn onto the N2 (towards Somerset West, George etc in other words away from Cape Town)keep on the N2 over Sir Lowry's Pass, very scenic, almost moonscape rock formations in parts. At Bot River turn onto the R43, through Onrus into Hermanus. Very straightforward and the quicker route, timewise.

2. Again from the airport onto the N2, a few kms past Somerset West turn right onto the R44 towards Gordon'sBay, Pringle Bay, Hangklip, Betty's Bay, Kleinmond eventually join the R43 to Onrus and Hermanus. If time is not a major factor I prefer this route as a lot of it is right along the coast with fantastic scenery. Again depending on time and your interests, at Betty's Bay there is a colony of African Penguins at Stoney Point, which entails a very small loop off the main road and a walk to the point from the car park there. A bit further on towards Hermanus is the Sir Harold Porter Botanical Garden. There doesn't appear to be anything to see looking from the road but once inside is a very pleasant place to stroll round and look at the gardens and a very nice little cafe.

Both routes are pretty straightforward and well signposted.

Hope this helps you with your planning.
