The beach in Fish Hoek area is clean and entrance is free which is great for budget travelers. The mountains are immediately beside the beach which makes a great view at any time of the day. I also noticed that there’s not much people unlike the popular beaches that we have back home. I easily noticed that there are no vendors who will harass you to purchase unnecessary items while you are in the mood for relaxation and silence. In other words, this place is a real getaway from the crowd and noise.
Hermanus is a small town in Western Cape province. A motorcylce ride from Cape Town means passing by through a wonderful scenery of mountains and of seas. It is about three hours ride depending if your GPS directs you into the right direction or not.
I arrived in Cape Town after a long 22 hour flight with three stopovers. From Manila, I flew for two hours to Hong Kong, and then took an overnight 10-hour flight to Addis Ababa in Ethipoia, and then another five and a half hour flight to Johannesburg, before taking the last two hour flight to Cape Town.
