Hermanus on New Years Eve

Hi there, we have a day trip planned to Hermanus on New Years Eve this year (we're coming from Capetown). I could not find too much information on these pages about Hermanus. Other than whale watching what activities are recommended? I understand there is a flea market but not sure if it would be open for NYE?

Also read some good reviews of Heaven and Creation for lunch. Which is better? I am thinking whale watching in the morning (after taking the scenic route from Capetown), followed by lunch at Heaven and some more wine tasting at Creation. We have to be back in Capetown by 5:30 so is that do-able? Thanks!

No whales that time of year, stay in Cape Town.

before reading and believing the last 2 comments it would be very wise to contact someone IN Hermanus and the tourism industry and knows what they are talking about

Hermanus will have over 250000 people visiting over the christmas and NYE holidays, so the town will be very busy indeed

the whales usually leave at the end of Dec but we regularly have mother and bay pairs here until late Jan, so you might see whales

the whale watching boats usually stop their trips at the end of Dec

Hermanus will be buzzing with loads of people on NYE but shops will close early and Activities companies will too - however nightclubs and restaurants will go on all night until about 2am/3am

Have a fab time in SA, thanks :-)))
