On the cliff & cusp in Hermanus

With unobstructed views of the ocean and a selection of elegant rooms to choose from, visitors to On the Cliff Guesthouse in Hermanus can enjoy whale watching from the comfort of their balcony or patio. With the bustling town centre only a short walk away and a cliff path running in front of the property, this whale watching mecca is all yours.

Travellers can get closer to these giants of the deep on whale-watching boat trips, and enjoy an array of other activities from wine tasting and paragliding to golf and quad-biking.

All of the rooms at On the Cliff Guesthouse have magnificent sea views, en-suite bathrooms, king size beds, tea/coffee-making facilities and private balconies, while the Penthouse’s lounge, bathroom and bedroom share one extended balcony, ideal for whale watching in the winter months. Other on-site amenities include a bar, breakfast area, swimming pool, secure parking, complimentary bicycles and Wi-Fi.
