Hermanus from the sea 2



Hermanus is situated about 120 kms from Cape Town which takes approximately 90 minutes to drive out on the N2 and exit onto the R43 which leads you into Hermanus.  There is an alternate scenic route  along the coast which means you still drive out on the N2 from Cape Town but after Somerset West follow the R44 to Gordon's Bay.  The road hugs the coast and passing through small seaside towns before joining up wit the R43 which leads directly into Hermanus.  Getting close to Hermanus you'll pass Fisherhaven, Hawston, Vermont and Onrus on the way.




This is followed by a large intersection with traffic lights at Sandbaai.  Continue straight.  Look out for the Gateway Spar Centre on the right hand side of the road with the 24 hour Total Garage on the corner at the second set of traffic lights. Continue straight through but count four turnings after this traffic light.  The fourth road will be Albertyn Street (road names are not easy to spot as they are written on the curb-stones).  Turn right into Albertyn Street.  You will see the sea down at the bottom of the road.  Flower Street is the very next intersection.  Turn left into Flower Street.  Dovecote is the fourth house on the left.  Just ring the bell to the side of the electric gate and we'll welcome you in.
