Area Info:      

The Cape Overberg region in the province of the Western Cape comprises some of the most scenic and popular parts of South Africa. These include the shark cage diving Mecca of Gansbaai as well as the whale watching hub of Hermanus. Onrus is part of Hermanus and showcases the peaceful ambience and holiday vibe of the little town. The town comes alive every year between about October and January, thanks to the whales that frequent the coastline at this time. These include Southern Right, Humpback and killer whales, which stage wonderfully dramatic performances for those on the shore and on whale watching tours to enjoy. Every year, between 60 and 100 of these marine giants make their way past the coast; spyhopping, breaching and lobtailing playfully, which gives the impression that they are as interested in their audience as we are of them. The entire area is surrounded by the impressive mountains of the Cape Overberg, as well as hundreds of species of the spectacular fynbos that is endemic to this country. This means that, no matter where in Onrus or the greater Overberg region one stays, the views are almost always breath-taking, and access to the wonders of the South African landscape are only a short drive or walk away. Onrus is the ideal holiday spot for visitors that want to enjoy a real South African beach holiday. These ocean waters are chilly, making them refreshing in the hot summer months. The nearby lagoon is warmer, and is also ideal for swimming (particularly for little ones that are not accustomed to the colder sea water). The beaches boast long stretches of pristine sandy shores, inviting families and friends to play Frisbee, picnic, suntan or take a dip in the cool Atlantic Ocean waters. Sailing, kiting and kayaking are also popular sports in the area.
