Hout Bay is a very popular holiday destination as it is very central.
A magnificent 20 minutes drive to Cape Town along the coast and 10 minutes from
Constantia's wine route. It has a magnificent beach and a variety of restaurants and shops.
Hout Bay has one of the busiest harbours in the Western Cape with an established tuna, snoek and crayfish industry. The harbour is home to the Hout Bay Yacht Club, sunset champagne cruises to the V&A Waterfront, boat trips to Seal Island in a glass-bottomed boat and several restaurants.
Hout Bay is surrounded by mountains to the North, East and West and the Southern Atlantic Ocean to the South. In the North it is bordered by the Table Mountain National Park, to the North-West the backside of the Twelve Apostles (Orangekloof), Little Lion's Head (Klein Leeukop) where we also find "Suikerbossie" (known as the toughest hill on the Cape Argus Cycle Race), Karbonkelberg, and the Sentinel and to the East the Vlakkenberg and Constantiaberg.
The kilometre-long white sandy beach is a 5 minute drive from The King's Place, with the world-famous Chapman's Peak and the Sentinel opening the gateway to the Atlantic Ocean...
