The Marine

An architecturally impressive historic hotel with superb sea views

Overlooking Walker Bay

Part of the Liz McGrath collection, this hotel is steeped in history with international acclaim.

The Marine is located on Hermanus’ famous cliff path, overlooking the breathtaking Walker Bay in the Western Cape’s Overberg region, the hotel is the ultimate location for whale watching during whale season – often directly from the comfort of the sea view bedrooms.. Set a couple of blocks back from the ocean just to the north of the old harbour, this architecturally impressive historic hotel has superb sea views.

The Marine Hotel boasts 43 individually decorated bedrooms and suites, each with its own private facilities. All enjoy commanding views across Walker Bay, the mountains or the finely manicured gardens. The view from the sea facing windows offer some of the best land based whale watching in the world during the migration season.

Activities in this area include whale-watching, shark-diving, snorkelling, diving, hiking in the hills and walking to remote beaches. The town also has a golf course, a couple of small museums and a decent range of stores, bars and restaurants.
