Trip Planner: Africa / South Africa / Western Cape / Cape Town / Cape Town Central / Hout Bay
A quaint fishing village, Hout Bay is also a popular weekend getaway known for its scenic harbor. Surrounded by mountains and offering access to a picturesque bay, the town and harbor, teeming with fishing boats, offer a bustling dining scene, hailed for its freshly caught seafood. Besides fishing and lounging on the sandy beach, you can find a "Big Wave Spot" off the village coast, where waves can swell up to 14 m (47 ft). Have a picnic, visit the town's famous bird park, or take a boat trip to admire the Cape fur seals on a nearby island. Planning Cape Town trip won't be overwhelming when you use Inspirock's itinerary maker.

We did not feel safe and the guys that feed the seal were aggressive with us even though we paid the R10 'donation' fee to take a picture with the seal. We went back and wanted to take another...

Hout Bay is a beautiful village nestled in the mountains. It is a must visit destination for any visitors to Cape Town. Only 25 minutes drive from the Cape Town CBD past Camps Bay and Llandudno.
Was a beautiful day out, great weather and good place to get a snack, lunch, some arts and crafts. Good afternoon out with the family. Catch one of the tours out to see the seals at seal island. Very affordable.
