LOCATION, SURROUNDINGS & ACTIVITIES

La Luna is located in one of the most astonishing coastal spots in South Africa and you can enjoy spectacular views.
  • One of the best lookout points in the world to see the impressive Southern right whales. From June/July to December they keep sailing, lobtailing, playing and breaching directly in front of your window.

  • All rooms and garden are facing the famous Walker Bay with the lights of Hermanus blinking right in front.

  • Only ten minutes scenic walk to Die Plaat, a paradise-like, white sandy beach with formidable waves. It goes all the way from Gansbaai to Hermanus.

  • As starting point to the South African Garden Route, the house is surrounded by the indigenous coastal fynbos with multiple species of native birds.

  • The house is situated right on top of a cliff that hides beautiful caves, some of which are accessible by foot and are beautiful to visit.

  • Just 5 km. from Gansbaai, your closest urban centre for shopping, restaurants, harbour and exciting shark cage diving!

  • 150 Km from Cape Town International Airport.

  • And do not forget to have a look at the milky way at night…!!
