De Kelders, literally translated into ‘cellars’ or ‘caves’, is an unspoilt coastal area in the Overberg. It derived its name from caves discovered in its sandstone cliffs and is located near the village of Stanford between Hermanus and the fishing village of Gans Bay.
The sprawling seaside town of De Kelders is characterised by its rough coastline and overhanging cliffs forming natural lookout points to view the whales from June to December.
Drup Kelders, after which the area is named, has several fairly deep freshwater rock pools and the De Kelders cave is the only freshwater cave on the coast of Africa. The Klipgat Cave, just outside De Kelders in the Walker Bay Nature Reserve, produced some of the oldest remains of modern man dating back to some 65 000 to 85 000 years ago.
