Tucked away by mountains to the North, East and West, Hout Bay is well-known for its vibrancy and beautiful views of the South Atlantic Ocean. Experience true township life at Joshua’s Tavern in the heart of Imizamo Yethu Township, or make your way to the Bay Harbour Market which offers a kaleidoscope of merchandise, décor, fashion and cuisine. Mariner’s Warf is a local and international favourite as you will find everything from casual fish and chips to smart dining, and even a curio shop with fresh pearls from an oyster. For the cherry on top, you can visit Seal Island, which is home to thousands of Cape Fur Seals. For the best fish and chips (according to locals), visit Snoekies at the end of Harbour Road. For the best ocean views, visit Dunes, which is almost literally on the beach. Chapmans Peak Hotel also offers spectacular ocean views and seafood dishes.
