Fisherhaven

En route to Hermanus from Cape Town lies the little village of Fisherhaven, and, as its name suggests, Fisherhaven is a quiet, peaceful haven; a nature lover’s paradise for hikers, birdwatchers and those wanting to escape the city. Only 110 km from Cape Town and a 20 minute drive from Hermanus, Fisherhaven is close enough to local attractions to provide entertainment and yet its greenbelt, lagoon, and gorgeous views of the surrounding mountains provide a sanctuary from daily life and pressures.

The little village of Fisherhaven has only about 350 houses, mostly weekend or holiday homes, which means that during the week and out of season, Fisherhaven is a place of solitude for rest and reflection. If you really want to spoil yourself, then the Caledon Spa and Wellness Centre, at the Caledon Casino and Hotel, is only a short drive from Fisherhaven. Otherwise, get out your fishing rod, inspire yourself with poetry or read a thick book in peace and quiet.

Fisherhaven, nestled along the Bot River Lagoon on the Western Cape of South Africa, offers a tranquil setting with natural beauty and outdoor activities.
