Zwelihle Township has a population of at least 25,000 and is home to the majority of people who work in the Hermanus area’s tourism and fishing industries. The Zwelihle Youth Café, located at the Zwelihle RDP Centre, is both an incredible resource for the community and a thriving tourist attraction.

Hermanus and its surrounding towns offer a huge variety of tourism activities beyond beaches and whale-watching: culinary experiences, wine-tasting, walking tours and hiking, among others. But it can be difficult to experience all these activities during a short trip because they are so widespread. A local tourism company called ChillGuru has moved to solve that problem with its own version of the world-famous hop-on-hop-off bus.
Hermanus is a stunningly beautiful town, with green mountains soaring over sandy, boulder-strewn beaches and of course the best whale-watching on earth. But even before arriving in Hermanus, visitors can enjoy one of the world’s most scenic drives on the road from Cape Town. If taken at a leisurely pace, this drive can fill up the better part of a day.
Hermanus is a holiday town and there is certainly no shortage of touristy restaurants along the water where visitors can enjoy a good breakfast. But if you want to go where the locals go in the morning, for a serious cup of coffee, conversation and an unbelievably good meal, Tulip Coffe Bar is the place.
