Area Information:

Hout Bay village is a very popular tourist destination for families and travelers as it is very close to Cape Town (20 km) and has a large variety of activities to offer, as well as all amenities such as wonderful shopping center's, art galleries and craft shops, fantastic food and craft markets, lovely deli’s and many excellent restaurants. Hout Bay has character and charm with a wonderful balance between the old and new, with a rich history and a modern pace. The ‘World of Birds’ with the famous monkey jungle, where the mischievous squirrel monkeys play with kids and adults, is a ‘must’ on the list of things to do.

Hout Bay has its own working harbour that is the home of the tuna, snoek and crayfish fleets. Choose your own 'catch of the day’ from the fish market or take a boat trip to Seal Island. Experience jet skiing and high speed boat trips as well as spectacular daily cruises. Watch the seals and seagulls enjoy the treats from the fishermen at the harbour, or the fishermen at work. Enjoy the festivity and the vibe of mixed cultures, whilst being entertained with traditional music of the Cape Minstrels in their colorful attire. Seal snorkeling tours available for the more adventurous!

Hout Bay has a wonderful variety of markets, all with great ambiance and well worth a visit. The famous Sunday Craft market is a fabulous fair for all to enjoy, including pony rides and jumping castles to keep the children happy. The indoor BAY HARBOUR MARKET right at the end of the harbour (park at 'Fish on the Rocks' restaurant) is fantastic, open on Saturdays and Sundays between 9am and 5pm. This market is very similar to the famous market at the ‘Old Biscuit Mill’ in Woodstock, with many yummie food stalls and interesting crafts, clothes and vintage stores.

Hout Bay has more than 60 eateries to choose from. Most of them are family run and offer warm hospitable service, Hout Bay is a wonderful community.

There are many, many scenic walks, picnic spots and hikes to choose from in and around Hout Bay. From easy circular forest walks at Constantia Nek to stunning hikes for more experienced hikers, such as the Karbonkelberg hike from above the harbour, or the most mind-blowing hike up Chapman’s Peak. There are ample mountain-bike trails as well.

Local tourist information office rents out electrical bicycles and can arrange for all kind of tours and activities.

Llandudno's pristine beach with white sand, boulders and sunsets dropping into the Ocean, is 5km away from the house, well worth a visit for s sunset stroll or watch the local surfers catch their waves.

Famous Chapman's peak drive is a MUST DO, this is one of the most beautiful and dramatic coastal road's in the World, with dropping cliffs, beautiful Mountain ranges and Bay views, as well as interesting engineering structures to keep the rocks from falling. This toll road takes about 20 minutes and offers spectacular sunsets, it starts in Hout Bay and takes you to the lovely countryside feel village Noordhoek, with horse paddocks, farms, and a lovely heart of the village called the farm village, with great coffee shops and restaurants, quaint shops, and a fantastic Deli.

The Cape Point Vineyards boast 360 degrees panoramic views, over the dam, the ocean, the vineyards sloping up the mountains and the beautifully tendered gardens.
