Hoy's Koppie, Hermanus

4.5
Named after a Scottish man who frequently hiked the hills, Hoy's Koppie features sloping, rocky areas that descend into fynbos that provide good hiking. The namesake was buried with his wife at the highest point of the hills, and the Koppie has several trails leading to the top. From there, you'll see views of the town, the nearby mountains, and the bay. Explore the cave that's estimated to be between 250,000 and 50,000 years old.

  • This is a worthwhile amble up the steps and path, giving you a great view of Hermanus and Walker Bay. Children would cope easily, and dogs enjoy the walk.  more »
  • The little hill in the village is and easy climb and great views across the village and sea. Parking space near Checkers, but has a lot of steps  more »

  • Cool little hill, which gives you a 360 degree view of Hermanus
  • This 75 m high hill is a natural landmark in the middle of Hermanus. A small hike to the top of this hill provides good views over the towns centre. It is also a historic place being the burial ground (right on top) of Sir William an Lady gertrude Hoy and his wife some previous dignities of the area.. But nothing to be worried. It is far beyond creepy.
