Fish Hoek is a waterside suburb overlooking the fabulous False Bay. The long expanse of beach is made all the more appealing with brightly-coloured change rooms, moderate waves for safe swimming and lifeguards on patrol. Add to that two restaurants on the beach and you have the perfect family seaside retreat.
The suburb is handily positioned for day drives to Cape Point or beyond, to the charming seaside villages of Misty Cliffs and Scarborough. Alternatively, day drives in the opposite direction takes in the entire scenic False Bay coast. Fish Hoek is a 40 minute drive from Cape Town.
Fish Hoek was once a whaling station, fortunately it’s now a safe haven for calving Southern Right Whale females.

They are usually well situated with shops and places of interest nearby. Being so small it offers a much more personal and intimate attention to it’s upkeep, leaving you with a more polished and homely experience.
