Well once again, the weather was the best marketing tool for Hermanus, and played along nicely for all the Easter visitors. Perfect autumn evenings to sip sundowners, family-filled beaches and a festive vibe were just what holidaymakers ordered to make the most of the last of summer.
If you didn't manage to get away for Easter, there is still another long weekend coming up! in fact, if you take just 3 days leave, YOU GET A 9 DAY BREAK! well that just makes perfect sense to you corporates out there.
Many accommodation establishments are offering last minute specials to catch the last of the holiday season's traffic before winter sets in. (In Hermanus, at least winter brings the whales..) have a look at www.holidayhouses-sa.co.za for some long weekend specials.
If you are looking for something fun to do over the freedom day weekend, There is a music festival on in Hermanus at the Village Piazza on both the Friday and Saturday night. call the Hermanus info Bureau for more info. 028-3122629. The restaurants surrounding the piazza all sell tickets to the show, you sit at the restaurant of your choice to watch the artists performing. For the best pizzas in town try out Paradiso... this will be a great place to see the show, while enjoying a perfect thin-base pizza.
I will keep you posted as to what is on offer in Hermanus, and you will also be the first to know when the first whale arrives for the season!
