The Western Cape is full of seaside highlights just waiting to be explored – Walker Bay has some of the most spectacular of all.

One of South Africa’s prime whale-watching locations, Walker Bay nature reserve is divided into several sections around and between Gansbaai and Hermanus.

From the top of the path that leads down to the shore at Klipgat cave, you can see Walker Bay’s pristine white sands stretch for many kilometres. The scale of the beaches, known as Die Plaat, is incredible.

CapeNature claims that Walker Bay is one of the world’s best spots for whale-watching from the shore. The bay is a calving-ground for southern right whales, and one can easily witness them frolicking from the shores of Die Plaat.

Whale season typically stretches from June to December every year, but the reserve is a stunning attraction all year round.
