More than tourism needed

The local economy of Hermanus took a knock in 2019. Several businesses had to close their doors and the property market has unsold stock.

The influx of people to local informal areas adds to the unemployment problem and further aggravates the housing need.

Businesses are, however, optimistic that things will get better. The local tourism industry expects a good summer season, and the hope is that an influx of tourists will have a knock-on effect on the rest of the economy.

But Hermanus can no longer afford to rely only on tourism for its prosperity. The Overstrand needs urgently to diversify its economic industries, and the best place to start is with the increased aquaculture activities. We actively need to seek investment and expand current operations.
