Hermanus, with its infamous cliffs that have incredible views over the ocean, can be easily described as one of the best places in the world to come and see Southern Right whales. The best time to spot the whales is between May and December when they leave their Antarctic feeding ground and travel to the warm waters of the Cape Coast. All along this coast, as well as from the comfort of The Ocean Eleven Luxury Guest House, avid whale watchers can see the Southern Right Whale swimming and simply interacting within the sheltered bays and coves where they venture close to the shore to mate and give birth to their young.
There is an outdoor pool with views overlooking the ocean.
