Birkenhead House, Hermanus

Before you is the ceaselessly rolling sea and the soft white sand of Walker Bay. Behind you is a splendidly stylish, luxury hotel with a superb spa, a dining experience that is delightfully different every day and staff who make you feel completely at ease the moment you step, barefoot, into the place.

And in front of you is a seemingly endless menu of activities, trips, tours and unforgettable experiences. If you’ve never seen a breaching Southern Right, if you’ve never explored one of the world’s six floral kingdoms, if you haven’t dived with sharks…Birkenhead House is waiting.
