Whale Rock Luxury Lodge

Whale Rock Luxury Lodge is located in Hermanus – a quaint coastal town known as the whale watching capital of the world. New Harbour is just across the road where you can board a Whale Watching Charter, take a scenic walk on the famous Cliff Path, or dine out and savour local flavours and fresh seafood. 

The town of Hermanus is home to award winning vineyards, and two Championship Golf Courses as well as a range of exquisite walks, hikes, and mountain biking trails. Whale watching from the shore can be just as exciting as taking a chartered boat – lookout points, beautiful hidden bays and beaches wait to be discovered.
