Hout Bay

Hout Bay, on the northern side of Chapman's Peak Drive, is a twenty-minute drive from Cape Town. Surrounded entirely by mountains and the Atlantic Ocean. Hout Bay offers some 40 restaurants, a wide array of antique and art shops, stalls, a waterfront that is both quaint and commercial, weekend markets and accommodation to suit every pocket and taste.

Hout Bay boasts one of the most active fishing harbours in South Africa. Housed within the harbour are the yacht and power-boat marinas - both popular and convenient stopovers for craft from all parts of the globe. The Bay itself is probably one of the safest sailing venues anywhere, and is also ideal at most times for water sports of all kinds. The mountains surrounding the valley provide hiking routes with breathtaking views. The wetlands around the Disa River support an abundance of bird life.
