Front-row seats to Walker Bay at The Marine

Sea-spray waters the rock face which ends at the walkway and lawns leading up to The Marine Hotel, overlooking Hermanus’ Walker Bay. Just beneath the surface of rolling ocean waters, large densities of great white shark share the area with southern right whales. Unsurprisingly, Walker Bay is one of the top places in the world to whale watch and shark cage dive. 

Hermanus has grown from a small fishing village to a popular tourist destination. The multitude of valleys in the area and its temperate climate has created perfect conditions for wine production. Visitors will find an array of wine farms scattered across the area. Hermanus is also part of the Cape Floristic Region, overflowing with diverse and endemic plant life – most famous of all of these being fynbos. 

With plenty to see and do in this charming town, the historic Marine Hotel offers guests five-star accommodation in their 40 elegantly decorated Suites. Owner-run hospitality, accompanied by world-class service and magnificent views of Walker Bay make The Marine an ideal host year-round. 


  • Historic five-star accommodation with a wheelchair friendly Cliff Path extending from the hotel into town
  • The Marine Hotel is located on the cliffs of Walker Bay 
  • Excellent whale-watching in the winter months and fantastic weather to be enjoyed on a Blue Flag status beach or in the Fernkloof Nature Reserve in summer
