Hout Bay is a fishing village which has managed to maintain its unique combination of fishing harbour and country atmosphere. Hout Bay's long, sandy beach faces a bay framed by mountains and is quite simply exceptionally beautiful. Capetonians throng here over the weekend to enjoy the beaches, visit the Harbour Market or enjoy one of the many nice restaurants.
Only three roads lead into Hout Bay, all of which are scenic drives: Chapman's Peak, although a toll road, remains one of the most beautiful and awesome routes with views to take your breath away, whilst the route over Suikerbossie Hill to Llandudno and other Atlantic beaches of Cape Town, in the shadow of the Twelve Apostles, is equally inspiring. The road that joins up with the Constantia Wine Route, over Constantia Nek, provides a bird's eye view of False Bay and takes you into the beautiful Constantia Valley.
